學校宗旨 The School
Lexington Chinese School (LCS) is one of the largest and
most prestigious Chinese Schools in New England. Its primary goal is to teach
the Chinese language so as to preserve Chinese culture and tradition. Another

between Chinese Americans and their local communities.
本校於一九七二年在麻州勒星頓成立，至今已有四十多年的歷史。 學生人數由創校初的三十六位，增加到今天的四百多位 (兩百多個家庭)。本校為新英格蘭中文學校協會及美東中文學校協會會員，和其它勒星頓及華人團體經常保持密切的聯繫與合作。
LCS was founded in 1972 in Lexington, Massachusetts. The school is currently located at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA. Starting with an enrollment of 36 students, LCS has kept growing over the past 40+ years. Today, Lexington Chinese School has an enrollment of over 400 students, from more than 200 families.
Lexington Chinese School is a member of the Association of Chinese Schools (ACS) and the New England Association of Chinese Schools (NEACS).
Having accomplished a fine system of teaching approaches and administrative functions, Lexington Chinese School aims to develop a greater variety of subject matters in curriculum design, while continuing to improve current teaching materials and adopt new learning tools.
LCS will continue to maintain a harmonious relationship with other Chinese
schools and social organizations, in order to strive to promote Chinese
instruction in the United States.
Lexington Chinese School has over 60 teachers, administrators, and parent representatives; and a student body of more than 400 students from over 200 families.
The LCS Language Program consists of more than 25 kindergarten, primary, and secondary school level classes, as well as bilingual classes. Bilingual classes are aimed for students whose primary language is not Mandarin Chinese or for students who do not have at least one Mandarin-speaking parent.
The curriculum in the Chinese Language Program is designed mainly to help students to develop the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Chinese. The School makes every effort to foster students' interest and desire to learn the language, consequently, in addition to the adoption of conventional Chinese language textbooks as primary teaching materials, LCS has also designed and compiled its own textbooks and guides for use as teaching materials and supplementary readings.
LCS offers language classes in junior high (Grades 7-9), elementary (Grades 1-6), and kindergarten levels. The Bilingual Program offers classes at kindergarten and elementary levels, as well as a bilingual class for adults. All classes are conducted in Mandarin Chinese except for the bilingual program which also uses English. The school teaches traditional Chinese characters and the Chinese phonetic alphabet, Zhu Yin Fu Hao (or Bo Po Mo Fo).
In addition to its Language Program, Lexington Chinese School also sponsors a variety of student extracurricular activity programs, which include: Chinese calligraphy, drawing/painting, folk art and dances, Chinese instruments, martial arts, badminton, table tennis and Chinese Yo-yo.
Classes at Lexington Chinese School meet once a week, on Sunday afternoons, from September through June. All language classes meet for two hours, 2:00-4:00 pm, each week. Student extracurricular activities run for an hour, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.
