Do you want Los Gatos High School to offer Mandarin Chinese as a world language? I do!

It is important to offer Mandarin Chinese as a world language at Los Gatos High School. Most other high schools in and around Silicon Valley offer Chinese 1-4, but Los Gatos does not offer Chinese at all. Students at LGHS are not given the opportunity to learn arguably the most important language of the foreseeable future.

In order to get Mandarin Chinese added to the world languages options, we need to show demand for learning Chinese at LGHS. If enough parents sign this petition declaring their interest in having Mandarin Chinese as an option for their child, the administration of LGHS and the LG-Saratoga Union High School District would need to listen. 

As it stands now, LGHS students who want to study Mandarin Chinese as a world language would need to find transportation to Saratoga High or do home school study or find a private, after school program. If LGHS adds Mandarin Chinese, including multiple levels for progression such as levels 1-4, then students could take this important language class during school hours without needing to leave campus. 

Currently, LGHS offers Spanish, Japanese, and French for levels 1-4 +AP (5). 

Please sign this petition to add Mandarin Chinese as a world language.
