About San Francisco Chinese American School

Founded in 1981, CAIS is an independent Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade co-ed Chinese English dual language immersion school. We are located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco and span across two campuses. The Waller Street Pre-K campus accommodates three and four-year-olds and is a 10 minute walk from the main Oak Street campus, which houses Kindergarten through eighth grade classes. From Pre-K through fifth grade, CAIS students spend a half day learning the core subjects of language arts, social studies and math in an immersion setting with native Chinese speaking teachers, and a half day with English speaking teachers. In middle school, the key subjects of math and science are only taught in English as we prepare the students for high school.
