Recognition of Successful Chinese Immersion Programs
College Gardens Elementary School's Chinese Immersion Program is one of 3 successful programs in Montgomery County Public Schools in the Potomac, MD region. The district began implementing these immersion programs a few years ago, and now in its fourth year, College Gardens boasts 99 students and an admission process that involves a lottery system due to the high demand of parents who want to send their children to the school.
