NWCS teachers are all highly qualified and very experienced at their job; all of which having at least received a bachelor’s degree in education related subjects. Throughout its ten years in existence, the school has absorbed both western and eastern styles of teaching into a delightful blend that is both effective and enjoyable for the students. In taking either SAT-2 Chinese or AP Chinese courses, students have often received full scores in their examinations. Math is another particular strength of the school, with many students performing incredibly well in competitions on a statewide and national stage. NWCS is accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools (NAAS).

Not only does NWCS teach how to understand, speak, read, and write Chinese language, but it also imparts knowledge of Chinese traditions and culture. Outside of the classroom, there are a plethora of events and activities including celebrating the moon festival, Chinese New Year performing party, annual students exhibition of calligraphy & art, and capping it all off with the end of the school year picnic. Ultimately, NWCS is more than just a school that teaches kids about the Chinese language and culture, but it has also become a bustling center of a rapidly growing Chinese community.
