Preschool and Lower Elementary
Preschool: 2, 3, and 4-Year-Olds Program
The Early Childhood program offers participation in a variety of play-related and hands-on experiences designed to develop learning readiness, physical coordination and development, and the social skills necessary to be successful in a classroom setting. Emphasis is placed on the development of self-confidence, self-esteem, and natural excitement to learn. A full spectrum of activities is provided including Music, Art, Physical Education, and play.
This academically oriented program develops skills and attitudes children need for future academic disciplines. A variety of experiences develop eye/hand/body coordination, and reading readiness. The program introduces Reading, Mathematics, Oral and Written Language, Science, and Cultural Studies. Mandarin is taught as a foreign language. There is a continued emphasis on personal development through varied classes of Music, Computers, Art, and Physical Education.

6- and 7-Year-Olds Program
A component of QSI's mission is keeping the urge to learn alive in every child. We measure success by the accomplishments and attitudes of the students. An environment that promotes learning and success stimulates continued growth. Our program includes Reading and Writing Literacy, Mathematics, Cultural Studies, and Science. Students also attend classes in the visual and performing arts, as well as Mandarin and Computer Literacy. Our success orientations foster character development at age level appropriateness. Through mastery learning, appropriate levels, time and resources, our students are successful.
8- and 9-Year-Olds Program
8- and 9-year-old students take a full schedule of Mathematics, Literacy, Science and Cultural Studies—and Mandarin as a foreign language. The students also explore and learn about Art, Music, Technology, Library and Physical Education through Specials classes on a weekly basis, as well as enrichment lessons taught by the homeroom teacher throughout the year. All of these components, taught with the concept of mastery learning, help the whole student grow into a lifelong learner.
The Intensive English (IE) program is for students that are in need of special attention in verbal and written English. This program is designed to assist students for whom English is not the first language. The goal of the program is to bring students up to a level of academic English, including oral competency, which allows them to transfer to the regular literacy classes as rapidly as possible.
