Half Hollow Hills CSD Joins Prestigious Asia Society Confucius Classrooms Network In recognition of its potential as a model Chinese language program for the U.S., strong local leadership, demonstrated commitment to international exchange and collaboration, and global vision for the future, Half Hollow Hills Central School District has been accepted as a member of the third cohort of schools in the Asia Society Confucius Classrooms Network. This national network of 100 exemplary Chinese language programs is being developed over a three-year period. With this third cohort, the Network represents almost 25,000 Chinese language learners in more than 100 schools in 27 states and the District of Columbia; public schools, independent schools, and charter schools; elementary, middle, and high schools; and urban, rural, and suburban schools. Half Hollow Hills believes that the addition of the Mandarin Chinese program in 2008 to the academic day reflects the District’s commitment to prepare students for the rapidly changing global society. One of a handful of school districts on Long Island to offer Mandarin Chinese, Half Hollow Hills welcomes the opportunity to partner with the Asia Society Confucius Classrooms Network in order to become a model Chinese language program of excellence.
