Hawaii Chinese Immersion School


Designed for those with a visionary perspective who take a keen interest in Chinese language and culture, HCIS offers Chinese classes in a progressive environment where foreign speakers of Chinese convene to work towards successful acquisition of the Mandarin language

HCIS students participate in overseas exchange trips where real-life application of language and cultural skills takes place. 

Our children have bargained on the streets of Beijing, sat with local Chinese pupils in village classrooms, cuddled live pandas in Chengdu, and cruised down the watery veins of Guilin.

How We Differ

Who We Are

An immersion-style curriculum that steers a child towards successful and meaningful acquisition of the Chinese language. We are more than a language class – we are an integral piece of a child’s social and cognitive development.
