WELCOME to the Chinese Department at Highland Park Senior High School!
The Chinese Language and Culture program offers a six-year sequence inmodern Chinese (Mandarin) from junior through senior high. In a rapidly shrinking world, understanding more than one world language assumes a greater significance; this outstanding Highland Park program offers a unique opportunity for students to prepare for changing world conditions and increased language requirements in colleges. The Chinese culture is an integral part of the program.
Teaching materials, developed, are especially designed to meet the needs of secondary school students. Student interest is encouraged by a variety of activities including field trips, visiting speakers and cultural presentations. The New Year Celebration is a joint effort by students, parents and Chinese friends celebrating the coming of the new year, a new commitment to their Chinese language studies. Juniors and seniors in the Chinese program may take advantage of the “College in theSchool’s” program and earn up to twelve college credits. Chinese is also part of the IB program Chinese level 4 and higher students have the option of taking the IB exam.
