On January 11, 2009, a free prize drawing ticket will be given to each person who walks through the doors at 1820 N. Floyd Road, Richardson, TX 75080, from 2:00pm - 3:30pm. The drawing takes place shortly thereafter, with a handful of educational prizes to be given out.
While the tuition voucher grand prize is something of a spectacle, the real crown jewel is in the wealth of information available at the Spring Open House. Teachers with decades of experience in the Chinese language, culture, and history stand ready to answer questions and explain the domestic influence that the Chinese language has in business, technology, and academia.
The Dallas Overseas Chinese School consistently lives up to the promise of teaching in a small classroom setting. There had not been more than 16 students per class; hence, each student is well cared for. Their motto since 1994 is to instruct and inspire through love and wisdom, and their teachers echo that commitment by making themselves available outside of class hours to answer questions from parents or to provide additional homework guidance for their students. The Dallas Overseas Chinese School is one of the best Chinese schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex in terms of student-teacher ratio and teacher commitment to quality education.
The Dallas Overseas Chinese School also has classes for advancement in mathematics and a curriculum in reading and writing in the English language. The majority of their math instructors hold PhD or Master’s Degree in math, and their English teachers have years of public school teaching experience.
The school is located conveniently for residents of Plano, Allen, McKinney, Garland, Addison, and Frisco as well. Course catalog is available at http://www.OverseasChineseSchool.com through the “Registration Package” link.
The prize drawing at the Spring Open House applies to students who pre-registered as well. If they win the grand prize tuition voucher, the school will turn around and cut them a refund check for tuition already paid. The winner also has the option of giving the voucher to their friend, as the voucher is transferable to anyone enrolling in the Chinese class.
The Dallas Overseas Chinese School is the educational arm of the Hai-Hwa Foundation, a non-profit entity committed to helping children succeed in the future. In addition to the school, Hai-Hwa also sponsors and operates a summer leadership camp at the Austin College in Sherman, Texas. The camp is staffed with alumni and teachers from the Chinese School, as well as specialists from Hai-Hwa’s very own Community Youth Leadership Club.
And, yes, the school has been teaching tai-chi and kung fu classes too.
