About NeoPrime Chinese
Incorporated in July 2016, NeoPrime Chinese was formed from the former “Episcopal Chinese School” which was over 10 years old. NeoPrime admits students from every ethnicity. We are currently a Saturday school serving preschool, primary school, middle school and adults. During the summer we offer weekly summer camps.
NeoPrime teaches Chinese language from an American perspective, while respecting the core values of the Chinese language and culture. Striving to create a natural immersion environment, we combine both modern and traditional teaching philosophies. All our classes are designed to inspire students’ creativity and real life application. We also incorporate Chinese calligraphy, tea ceremony, flower arrangement, Chinese martial arts and guqin into Chinese language teaching. We guide students to think about the origin of life, respect nature, and understand the principles of Dao.
NeoPrime is conveniently located in a quiet location in Bellevue. We are only minutes away from Bellevue College, Bellevue Botanical Garden, Lake Hills Library and Crossroad shopping mall. Our two-story building is simple and humble. All fixtures – six spacious and bright classrooms, students store and lounge area, outdoor play ground, big natural lawn, and garden boxes are designed to serve the communication between human and nature, body and soul.
We believe environmental resources, such as location, structure, space, atmosphere, decorations, color and material etc., plays a subtle role towards education. However, limited by the hard rental condition, we can only design small local parts to symbolize Chinese culture. For instance, we use scroll paintings, ancient music, kendo etc. to build a high mountain and flowering water artistic concept.
