Congratulations to Yu Ming Charter School on opening their Carolyn campus in San Leandro!
Yu Ming will offer their K-3 Mandarin Immersion program at this campus. Formerly occupied by Key Academy, the campus is reusing the existing portable units at the site and is excited to serve more families at this location.
PCSD was happy to partner with them on their continued use application with the Alameda County Planning Department in order to secure the use of this site. Yu Ming started this process with the county late 2021 and received approval in January 2022. Then, they solidified the location approvals with Alameda County Office of Education in order to start operating there for the 22-23 school year.
Yu Ming is a non-profit, tuition-free K-8 public charter school and was founded in 2011 by a group of diverse families. Yu Ming’s mission is to nurture an inclusive and diverse community to become empowered, engaged, and outstanding global citizens. Yu Ming is a 2019 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, a 2020 California Distinguished School and the first Mandarin immersion public charter school in the state.
