About Us

Our Mission

To deliver the highest quality Chinese immersion after school program in Silicon Valley.


The Los Altos Chinese School was founded in 2014 by a group of experienced teachers with a common goal: to promote children’s successful Chinese learning results through passion and love, enhancing their positive attitude and confidence towards life.

Our Logo

Our logo (located in the upper right corner of our website) consists of two major components: the yellow “乐” and the brown “山” that represent our Chinese name, and the green capital letters that represent the abbreviation of our English name. “乐” means happy in Chinese, and the “乐” with an uplifting yellow color symbolizes a child who is learning and growing happily. “山” means mountain in Chinese, and the brown “山” symbolizes that the child is advancing to a higher level on the Chinese language mountain, based on a solid foundation. The LACS (abbreviation of Los Altos Chinese School) in bright green leaves color symbolizes that the child will develop healthily.

Our Students

Our students range from kindergarten to 6th grade.

Advantageous Location


Los Altos Chinese School was formerly located at the Los Altos Hillview Community Center. In 2019, our school changed its model to locate on the campus of each elementary school in the Los Altos School District. This provides convenience and safety, as students at each school go directly from their primary classroom to their LACS classroom without the need for any transportation. Our program begins at the end of the school day, even if it is a short day.

Program at a Glance

Our Mandarin Chinese immersion program runs from the end of the school day to 6pm, Monday through Friday. Our teachers strive to provide a pleasant environment where students can learn Chinese language and culture, and build their vocabulary and language skills in a fun environment.

Non Discrimination Statement

Los Altos Chinese School makes no distinction nor does it give preferential treatment in its admission or operating policies with regard to an individual’s race, color, or national and ethnic origin.
