About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Yinghua Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Yinghua Academy had 16 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Minnesota average is 16 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Yinghua Academy Reviews
School has suffered tremendously since principal Sue Berg was hired
When our child enrolled we got in through a lottery with a huge waiting list, and now they cannot even fill their kindergarten spaces. The school is so disorganized that parents are now forbidden from entering the school for pickup and drop off. One staff member has no teaching license or educational experience, and his main role is "disciplinarian." The teachers are the lowest paid of all the Chinese immersion schools and so their turn over is high with new inexperienced teachers feeling overwhelmed with too many kids per classroom. It's a shame how the school has changed. 2013 saw a mass exodus of kids leaving the school.
it changed way to much we as the kids hate it.
Great place to learn. Great location off 35W in Minneapolis. 90th percentile in math and English Minnesota test scores. The scores are very high for a Chinese (Mandarin) immersion school. Culture events and performances add a relatable total experience for the student.
Wonderful teachers at Yinghua Academy, great place to learn. My kids love the Chinese language.
