We have three children attending Yu Ming and have been with the school for the past 7 years. It has been an amazing experience and I feel incredibly fortunate that our children are receiving this high quality education for free. All three have become fluent in speaking, reading and writing Chinese, and with parents who know no Mandarin. They are also strong in math and English, and most importantly, they're very happy and enjoy going to school every day (prior to COVID) with their friends and teachers. We've found the teachers and administrators to be caring and proactive with issues that come up and constantly looking for ways to improve. It's a smaller, growing school so it has characteristics in-line with this: there aren't as many schools sports teams or extracurricular activities as you'd have at a school with more students, parent involvement is critical for certain activities/ programs to exist and can/ do go away when no one steps up, the kids grow up a little more sheltered than if they were at a larger school. Overall, we won the literal and figurative lottery getting into Yu Ming and I'd recommend it to any parents.

Although there are quite a lot of good teachers, but there are many bad teachers here. For example, one comes to school even though she is coughing badly (And it is even the COVID-19 time to make matters worse) They are very unfair and the classes they teach are bad quality. The principals are also very bad. Their leadership skill is terrible, and they are also very selfish. For example, the principals assigned the Chinese teacher to teach us history, and the Chinese teacher doesn't even follow the history CCSS for California. Also, this school lies a lot. They only care about the performance of the students but they say they care more. The software they use is also very messed up and rigged, there are a lot of loopholes and ways students could cheat. So I think that this school shouldn't get the blue ribbon.
