Regulations (学生与家长守则)

Since its establishment in June 1995, Yellow River Chinese School has, through the joint efforts of teachers and students and the enthusiastic support of parents, become the largest and fastest-growing Mandarin Pinyin and Simplified Chinese character school in the Bay Area. It provides a favorable environment for Chinese children to learn the language and cultivate their talents and character.

In order to ensure the continued operation of Yellow River Chinese School, we have formulated student and parent guidelines and earnestly request your compliance. Let us work together to improve the school and let Yellow River Chinese School grow alongside your children!
