Since 2012, Hope Chinese Charter School has partnered with the Confucius Institute at Portland State University as a Confucius Classroom.
As a CIPSU partner, HCCS participates in a teacher exchange program each year where a teacher intern is hosted by a HCCS family while working and receiving training at our school. We also receive learning and cultural materials from HanBan, the Chinese affiliate to CIPSU. CIPSU provides teacher training and language assessments that our students and teachers can benefit from. In addition, CIPSU sponsors cultural classes, performances, and concerts that HCCS families can enjoy and have participated in many times over the years. CIPSU enhances our knowledge and understanding of Chinese history, culture, and customs. We greatly appreciate their partnership.
