For over fourteen years, Foothill Chinese School has been dedicated to teaching the Chinese language, culture and arts to children and youth in La Canada and its surrounding areas. 

We are a non-profit organization founded in 2005 with tax-exempt status under section 501 C (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Experienced Teachers

Our dedicated teachers have over 10 years of experience teaching Chinese to children.  We teach simplified Chinese characters and pinyin from beginner to Advanced levels and incorporate age appropriate stimulus to engage our students.  For example, we reinforce course material with arts and crafts for younger children but with older children we debate on topics of interest.
