More than forty years of research consistently documents the power of immersion programs to help students attain high levels of second language proficiency.
Chinese is the most widely spoken first language in the world and the third most commonly spoken language in the U.S. China is heir to the traditions of one of the world’s richest and most ancient cultures and home today to the world’s second largest economy. Its political, economic, and cultural impact in generations to come will be significant.
Proven Benefits of Immersion Programs

Who Can Participate?
The Mandarin Dual Immersion Program at Quail Run seeks to enroll Kindergarten students for the upcoming school year. Kindergarten students who live in the Quail Run attendance area and enroll in Quail Run's Kindergarten Program during the enrollment window have priority over those students who live outside the Quail Run attendance area. Also, attending our spring parent meeting is mandatory to be considered. A lottery is held if there are more Quail Run students than spaces available. The district will determine if students who live outside the Quail Run attendance area are allowed to attend Quail Run through the Open Enrollment Transfer process. Because of the tremendous interest in this program from our San Ramon families, students who live outside of the district will not be considered for this program.
