At the Walnut campus of Tzu Chi Elementary, we nurture and educate students in Kindergarten with a culture that actively models globalism and environmentalism. As we aspire to create well-rounded, bilingual and biliterate students fluent in English and Chinese, our faculty provides an exemplary bilingual learning environment as well as a thematic character education curriculum infused with respect, compassion, gratitude, and love. We plan to grow this school each year by adding another grade level until we reach a full school of Kindergarten through fifth grade. Furthermore, we maintain small class sizes in a diverse, inclusive, and caring community to ensure that our students receive the academic and emotional support they need to excel.
To complement our comprehensive curriculum that highlights caring for the earth and personal well-being, we serve freshly-prepared, nutritious meals each day. Also, we encourage interpersonal skills development through community service activities, which offer our students an abundance of opportunities to develop relationships with members of the local community, families, and friends while pursuing their education with us.
Our faculty is dedicated to teaching analytical skills that will lay the foundation for ongoing academic success; while nurturing creativity, exploration, and a love of learning; and guiding students towards developing character, and a compassionate, respectful outlook. Our educators mentor students with attentive care and patience so that each can develop his or her full potential, and embark on the path towards a life as an engaged global citizen who contributes to society and protects the environment.
