Welcome to Chinese School of San Diego!

The Chinese School of San Diego (CSSD) has a history dating back to over 100 years. It is the oldest Chinese school in San Diego, and it is the only Chinese school in San Diego to teach both Cantonese & Mandarin.

CSSD teachers provide learning experiences that are appropriate to a student’s age. We take student-centered approach to instruction that capitalizes on each student’s strengths.

The school fosters a warm, caring learning environment with freedom of expression and respect for others as key elements.
