Special Needs Students

Our school does not have the personnel and equipment resources to work with students who have specialized schooling requirements. As a result, we do not offer programs for students with special needs.

Chinese Program

All new students are given a Chinese assessment in late August and students are placed in an appropriate-level Chinese class.There are 2 types of Chinese programs at the SMIC Private School - Yuwen (for native Chinese speakers) and CSL (Chinese as a Second Language). Within the CSL (Chinese as a Second Language) program, there are various levels in which students can be placed depending on their Chinese proficiency. We offer a very solid Chinese language program at the SMIC Private School.
