Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy is one of the top performing schools in our state. Our school provides instruction
in Mandarin across all core subjects including science, technology, engineering and math. Our dedicated staff helps create
multicultural citizens of the world. Students become fluent in Mandarin Chinese and develop skills at or beyond standards set
for English-only programs. We’re proud of the academic progress of our students: most recently 100 percent of our third and
fourth graders passed the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) math test. Kindergarten and first grade students
are taught predominantly in Mandarin. Similarly, grades 2-5 receive most of their instruction in Mandarin, but also receive 50
minutes of English language arts instruction daily. Jie Ming is one of more than 300 Confucius Classrooms in the nation; the
University of Minnesota’s Confucius Institute supports innovative teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture.
