Welcome to Portland Public School Chinese Flagship

The PPS Chinese Flagship Program is structured on the total language learning approach incorporating three key elements:

  • Content-Based In-leftstruction:Regular academic subjects, such as math and social studies, are taught in Mandarin Chinese.
  • Explicit Language Instruction: With a focus on language and literacy for communicative purposes, meta-linguistic skills are incorporated in instruction and learning.
  • Experiential Learning Practices: Students engage in real, meaningful life experiences that require them to practice their language skills and cultural awareness.

PPS Chinese Flagship is part of the Oregon K-16 Chinese Flagship Program
