“Contra Costa Chinese School stands out as the best Chinese school in the East Bay. With its wonderful array of festivals and EP classes, CCCS really emphasizes the importance of the cultural, as well as language, importance in the Chinese learning experience.”
10th Grade student

“After a twenty year hiatus from studying Chinese, Contra Costa Chinese School once again afforded me the opportunity of studying Chinese. Though I am not Chinese and am 44 years old, I was not turned away by the administration and felt very welcome at the school. The opportunity to study Chinese is open to all.”
Adult Student/Parent

 “There were some characteristics of CCCS….student body is made up of students from a variety of different backgrounds….students can learn writing in either the traditional or simplified Chinese characters…..One other strength this school has is the teachers. The teachers I have met and spoken with truly care about their students and really do want to help them master the material. They use a variety of innovative and interactive methods to not only teach the material, but make it interesting and keep the students engaged.….I like all the different elements of Chinese culture that they teach – not only painting and dancing, but also ping pong and yoyo.….lead me to believe that this school is the ideal choice for our family.”
Parent of transfer student

 "As a non-Chinese speaking parent, after four years with the school I can say with confidence that the school has been a delight. My child continues to learn the language along with the needed confidence to use it (such as during her travels in Taiwan). For myself I have learned some of the language and culture along the way.  The staff, other parents, and teachers being so welcome I recommend this school to other households, both for itself and also to augment the Monday-to-Friday school."

"I love to teach at CCCS, and I will continue to teach there for many more happy years... It is a blessing to help the younger generation grow up. As a teacher, I whole-heartedly and mindfully guide my students in not only Chinese language learning, but in many other cultural subjects as well. Their knowledge and skills will continue to bloom in later years as they continue to practice and learn Chinese. Like a mother with her own children, I dedicate my spare time and personal devotion to teaching my students with all my love, passion, and patience."
