Chinese Partial Immersion Program
West Side Elementary School began hosting a kindergarten partial immersion Chinese program at the start of the 2012-2013 school year. Students enrolled in the program will continue through grade five and have the opportunity to develop communicative and academic proficiency in both Mandarin Chinese and English.
Any Allegany County student eligible for kindergarten in the 2023-2024 school year may apply for the program; however, transportation will not be provided for students who reside outside of the West Side School attendance area. Registration for the program will take place at a child’s home school during pre-k/kindergarten registration on April 17, 2023 to May 19, 2023, by appointment only. Applications will be available at all ACPS elementary schools.
