Westlake Chinese School

        Westlake Chinese School was originally founded in 1987 and officially named and registered as "Westlake Chinese Culture Association", a none-for-profit organization in 1999. For more than 30 years, Westlake Chinese School has grown from a family Chinese classroom to an influential cultural organization, tirelessly promoting and disseminating Chinese language, culture and art in the greater Cleveland area.

Westlake Chinese School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Westlake, Ohio, whose mission is to promote intercultural communication, enrich the community with Chinese cultural information and services, and provide high-quality Chinese language education. Westlake Chinese School welcomes any groups and individuals who wish to learn Chinese and are interested in Chinese art, culture and traditions.

About Our School

        Currently, we have more than 150 students from 100+ families. They can be divided into three distinct groups: one is students whose parents have native Chinese background, and the other two groups are students whose parents do not have native Chinese background (adopted Chinese children and other ethnic groups interested in Chinese culture and art ancestry). Students range from preschoolers to high school students and adults, ranging in age from 5 to 50+ years old.   

        Every Saturday 9am to 1pm at Lee Burneson Middle School, Westlake Chinese School provides Chinese language and culture courses for everyone. According to the different family background, the language programs are divided into three categories: Simplified Chinese, Chinese culture and adult Chinese class. From 11:00 to 1:00, we provide students with extracurricular cultural and sports activities, including Chinese Painting, Dancing, Martial Arts, Tai Chi, Badminton, Table Tennis, Cucurbit Flute, Voice Lesson etc. Most Chinese teachers have a master's degree and the Ohio State Teacher's Certificate. More than half of the teachers have more than 10 years of teaching experience.
