School Vision

CEC cultivates academically-prepared newly immigrated students by developing foundational skills for the mainstream classroom.  CEC empowers newcomer advocacy in students, families, and staff through building relationships, social-emotional learning, and cultural learning.

Our School 学校

Chinese Education Center

The Chinese Education Center Elementary School of the San Francisco Unified School District is a one year transitional school for Chinese-speaking, recently arrived immigrant students in Kindergarten through fifth grades. It was established in 1969 at the urgency of the Chinese community in San Francisco to address the eduational and social needs of the newcomer students and families. We provide a specially designed academic program that meets the needs of our students. All classroom teachers are certificated with bilingual or BCLAD competencies.
