Seeking a middle school with small classes, foreign languages
Our (just turned) 11 year old daughter has been going to the amazing Shu Ren International School since kindergarten. Next year, she'll finish up 6th grade there, and it's time to move on to a middle school.
The school, faculty, and the administration have been amazing at this International Baccalaureate (IB), Chinese immersion program.
We're located in El Cerrito, and aren't sure Korematsu is necessarily a good fit for her given her personality. At Shu Ren, not only has she gotten an amazing, personalized education due to IB, but she’s been in an intimate setting with 12-15 kids per class.
We’re looking for charter/(affordable) private middle-school recommendations that meet the following criteria:
- Personalized learning
- Amazing teachers
- Smaller than normal class sizes
- A foreign language emphasis, if possible (Spanish is fine, but Chinese is ideal)
