Mission Statement

Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School aims to spark the fire of lifelon g learning by providing a world class education for students in our nation's capital. The first public school in Washington, DC, to offer Chinese language immersion, Yu Ying combines language immersion with the inquiry-based curricula of the International Baccalaureate Organization.

Description

Washington Yu Ying PCS (Yu Ying) is a revolutionary school that is on the leading edge of elementary education by combining a Chinese language immersion program with the state-of-the-art International Baccalaureate curriculum framework. Translated, Yu Ying means "nurturing excellence."

Yu Ying was founded on the premise that fluency in more than one language develops a greater ability to communicate with and to understand other cultures and that Chinese is a language of the future. Chinese is spoken by one in five people on the planet. As our economic connections to China strengthen and our political destinies become more intertwined, Chinese is increasingly being identified as an important international language. Yu Ying students who graduate speaking Chinese fluently will be well-positioned to enter college and the job market.
