Welcome to HudsonWay Immersion School!
As the founder of HWIS, and more so as a parent, I am passionate about providing children with the foundation necessary to learn and think in two languages. Though born of Chinese heritage, I did not grow up speaking Chinese at home. Desiring that rich and beneficial opportunity for my own two children, I founded HudsonWay Immersion School to give them and others the vast opportunity to become bilingual.
However, it was only after watching students flourish in our diverse immersion education program that I came to fully understand and appreciate the depth and array of benefits immersion education provides. Educational research confirms bilingual children consistently outscore monolingual children in academic testing. Learning in two languages results in cognitive stretching that reshapes children’s thinking and enhances their problem solving ability. Children become more flexible and more creative and, as a result, learn even more!
HudsonWay Immersion School’s three educational leaders have over 65 years of immersion experience combined. Our proven model and instructional strategies are based on extensive research and experience supported by strong teacher development, modeling and coaching.
Since our founding as the first independent immersion school in the New Jersey/New York area, our goal has been to provide the highest quality education for young children using an immersion approach. We challenge our students to reach their highest individual potential, enabling them to confidently take risks and navigate the world.
We invite you to explore our website and visit our school. Join us on this exciting academic and cultural journey and allow us to open up a whole new world for your child.
With warm regards,
