Chinese American International School

150 Oak St, San Francisco, CA 94102

CAIS provides students with an international education and bilingual immersion in Mandarin Chinese and English. The school teaches the full range of subjects in both languages, and children study the traditional and contemporary values of both American and Chinese cultures. While no prior knowledge of Mandarin is required of prekindergarten or kindergarten applicants, students applying to grades 1-8 must demonstrate sufficient proficiency in the language to succeed in bilingual courses. CAIS opened a separate prekindergarten site on Waller Street in September 2009.
