School History 希望中文學校简史
Originally founded in the summer of 1993 by the Chinese Students and Scholars Association of University of Maryland at College Park as a Chinese language school to serve the university community, the school was registered independently with the University and later with the states of Maryland and Virginia under the current name--Hope Chinese School. It was incorporated into a nonprofit under a Board of Directors. With a reputation of outstanding faculty and demanding program, HCS has attracted students far and wide, and grown and expanded quickly. HCS opened Rockville campus (Maryland) in June 1995, Fairfax campus (Virginia) in June 1996, College Park campus (Maryland) in January 1998, and Herndon campus (Virginia) in January 2001. In addition, HCS for Children's Performing Arts was formed in 1996 offering classes in dancing, chorus, and orchestra, and giving performances on various festivals to promote Chinese culture and arts. HCS for Athletics was formed in 1998. It provides training and practice programs in these sport events: basketball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, martial arts, and swimming. Currently Hope Chinese School has over 4000 students enrolled in all campuses.
