北京中文学校简介

      北京中文学校是由世界知名文学家、教育家梁实秋先生的侄女梁文芝女士,秉承教育世家的优良传统,肩负传承和弘扬中华文化的历史使命,搭建中美文化友谊桥梁的美好理念,于一九九七年十月在纽约州政府注册的非营利性机构。风雨兼程,迄今已走过近二十年的历史。

      北京中文学校办学目的旨在培养出生在美国的ABC学生成为中英文双语人才,更好地为常青藤大学及优秀大学输送双语人才,为将来立足于美国主流社会和回馈祖国打下坚实的文化基础。学生通过学习中国的语言文字、了解中国的历史、地理和文化知识,进而达到普及、弘扬中华文化,使其成为学贯中西、促进中美文化交流、加强中美友好关系桥梁的使者。

      近二十年来,北京中文学校经历了1997-- 2002年前6年的艰苦创业阶段、2003-- 2012年10年的飞速发展阶段,及2012年至今近5年专一教学阶段。透过三个具有代表性的发展历程,我们看到了学校发展迅速,在校学生人数稳步增长,办学范围稳健发展,教学管理日臻完善,师资力量阵容稳定,教学成效蜚声远近。现在北京中文学校坚持开办周末中文、美术班,设有三间分校,学生数百余人。

      周末中文班自始至终是学校的主体。本校选用实用性、系统性较强的《中文》教材,采用一年三学期制的相对密集型的教学安排。目前学校设有各册《中文》教学班,四岁以上的学前班,中学部教学班,以及“一对一”的特别中文教学,方便不同程度的学生随时入学开课。各中文班聘请有经验、有爱心、负责任的老师任课。本校中文教学注重听、说、读、写全面练习,教学管理严格规范。每年三月及十一月均组织学生参加一年一度的SATII全美中文模拟考试,以及中国教育部对外汉语水平HSK考试。本校历创纽约地区HSK参考人数最多、成绩最好的突出范例,很多学生获得了中国政府提供的暑期赴中国免费留学的奖励;更有不少学生以优异的中文成绩而进入哈佛、耶鲁等名校。部分学生获得北京奥运会双语义工资格。

      从2012年开始,因着纽约州中文学校如雨后春笋般地兴起,学校的一些辅助课程安排显得不是那么迫在眉睫。于是学校审时度势,竭力培养高精尖的中英文双语才子,办学理念转化为高质量、专一型的中文教学模式。注重培养学生的写作能力成为学校的一大特色,近五年来,学校连续四年荣获美东地区少年儿童中文写作大赛组织奖。

      严格执行毕业四项标准是北京中文学校一直持守的办学准则。学生学完中文十二册为小学部毕业,学校对学生的资格考核,始终坚持四项标准,缺一不可。即完成学校所选用的中文教材12册,并经各级老师考试通过;SATII全美中文模拟考试700分以上(满分800分);中国教育部对外留学生汉语水准考试(简称HSK),学校要求考试过关为240分,满分300分);在中文报刊或杂志发表文章5篇以上。主要在《世界日报》、《侨报》两类报刊发表。

      一直保持的周末下午的才艺班,既是美学教育的重要环节,也是中文教学的延伸和补充。本校的才艺班包括:绘画班、舞蹈班、书法班、器乐班、武术班等。全部教学使用中文。学生通过趣味无穷的才艺课,既训练了听说能力、开发了学生多方面的才能,又以潜移默化、润物无声的方式帮助学生了解中国文化,进而全方位接受中华文化的熏陶。

      周一至周五开设课后辅导班(After School)、周末英文班和数学班、暑期中英文双语学校,以及暑期中国旅行团等,自学校创办以来至2012年均是本校弘扬中华文化教育及培养双语人才的辅助与延伸,在特定的历史时期收到极为理想的办学佳绩。

      北京中文学校组建有义工团。旨在培养本校毕业生、学生以及公立学校九年级以上的高中学生的组织能力和教学能力。担任义工的学生皆为校长助理,由校长亲自指导布置工作。他们主要参与学校教学的组织管理工作、中英文翻译工作、宣传指导工作以及教学助理工作等。义工学生在工作结束时,可获取学校颁发的义工证书,优秀者获取奖状、奖杯。符合资格者将享有本校中文课程免费或赴中国游学旅行团免费资格。

      北京中文学校艺术团是一支活跃社区文化生活并服务社区的队伍,由本校师生组成。曾经多次应邀参加各社团组织的活动以及社区大型表演活动,获得各方欢迎和好评。

      北京中文学校努力拓展并积极构建中美教育和文化交流平台。目前正在开展的主要项目有:中美校际交流与合作;中美教师交流与培训;中美儿童文化艺术交流与演出以及其他交流项目。


Beijing Chinese School

Beijing Chinese School was founded in October 1997 by Wendy Liang, the niece of world-renounced literary theorist and educator Liang Shiqiu. In hopes of using her family legacy to further facilitate intercultural communication and educational exchange between China and the United States, Liang established Beijing Chinese School, now with a history of almost 20 years, as a state-registered non-profit educational institution in New York.

The mission of Beijing Chinese School is to train Chinese students born in the United States to become fully bilingual. The school seeks to provide students with an advantage when applying to top-tier US colleges and future job opportunities in order to build a foundation for US-China cultural exchange. It is the hope that, in the future, students will facilitate communication between the two countries through their study of Chinese language, history, geography and culture.

During its 20-year history, the school has undergone its foundational establishment from 1997 - 2002, rapid development and growth from 2003 - 2012, and a refocus on education from 2012 - 2017. Since 1997, the school has continued to evolve and improve, as seen by developments in the school’s teaching curriculum, student enrollment, and local recognition. Currently, Beijing Chinese School operates weekend Chinese and art classes in its three branches for about 100 students.

Beijing Chinese School’s main program has always been weekend Chinese programs. The curricular textbook, Zhongwen, is a set of integrative Chinese language textbooks. We operate on a trimester system that allows for a comparatively intensive class schedule, and currently offer classes for different levels of the Zhongwen textbook, a preschool class, middle school class, and one-on-one tutoring sessions to meet the individual needs of students.Our teachers are experienced, responsible and passionate, and our curriculum emphasizes increasing students’ proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing Chinese. Every March and November, our students participate in the SATII Chinese and HSK tests, with the school admitting the most students with the highest scores on the HSK test. Our students are accomplished and have pursued exciting opportunities: studying in China sponsored by the Chinese government, matriculating at Harvard and Yale due to their excellency in Chinese, and qualifying to be bilingual volunteers in the Beijing Olympics.

In the past five years, we have refocused our resources on our greatest strengths: educating bilingual students, and developing students’ writing skills in particular. Beginning in 2012, many Chinese schools have emerged in the New York area, resulting in lower demand for some of our extracurricular programs. In response to this, we have revamped our educational mission, and our school has been awarded a number of distinctions in tri-state Chinese writing competitions.

Students graduate from the elementary level of Beijing Chinese School after finishing all twelve textbooks of Zhongwen, and we have four strict criteria for graduation: 1) completion of all twelve books of Zhongwen and all level tests; 2) score of over 700 in a SATII Chinese mock test; 3) score of over 240 in the HSK test, and 4) publication of at least five articles in Chinese magazines and/or newspapers, primarily the World Journal and China Press.

Our current weekend art program includes classes in painting, dancing, Chinese calligraphy, musical instruments and martial arts. All classes are taught entirely in Chinese and serve as an important supplement to students’ Chinese language education, allowing participants to learn about culture and art while practicing their listening and speaking skills. Our past program also included weekday after-school programs, weekend English and math programs, a summer bilingual school and a summer camp in China as extensions of our regular language curriculum.

Beijing Chinese School also offers a community service program that aims to develop students’ leadership skills and volunteer experience. Program members serve as assistants to the principal and are responsible for assignments such as translating documents and materials, assisting in school management, aiding teachers, and increasing the school’s publicity. All volunteers become officially certified at the end of one semester, and outstanding volunteers can take certain classes for free, or even receive a free trip to China. The school also hosts an art troupe made up of students and faculty members that participate in community showcases. The work of the troupe is consistently well received and focuses on community service and engagement.

The school has been working to further facilitate student language and cultural interaction between the United States and China in a number of ways. Current projects include international school exchange programs, teacher exchange and training programs, and building dialogue through artistic and cultural exchange.
