Duff Elementary School in Rosemead provides a Chinese (Mandarin) Dual Language Plus Program to Kindergarten Students.
The grand reopening ceremony was held on Friday, Friday, August 17. A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the event and was followed by a Family Play Day at Garvey Park located next door to Duff School.
The Chinese Dual Language Plus program follows a 50/50 model with half the instructional time in Chinese and half in English.
The program is enhanced with a one-hour after school enrichment program designed to promote exposure and appreciation for the Spanish language culture.
The first year will involve only Kindergarten students. Thereafter, an additional grade will be added.
