A group class allows student to see their peers also in the class, which allows them to enjoy the learning process more. Also, when a student finishes a year in our school, they get a certificate of completion which they can use on their resume. For example, “Student X completed 2 years of Persian language studies at Kooshesh Persian School.”
Registration for language, dance, and music classes is limited to a one-year period as of now.
If before the third day of class (September 24, 2023) you decide the class is not working for your child, you can get a refund prorated for the classes attended. Please be aware that if you decide to change your mind for any reason, you will not be able to return to school until the beginning of the next academic year.
We do not offer a sibling discount since our rates are already low.
There will be a short placement form upon registration.
In order to be eligible to attend our Intro class, a child must have attended preschool for at least one complete year. In order to be eligible to attend our Persian Immersion 1 classes, a child must have attended preschool and/or kindergarten for at least one full year. We can decline a registration or ask a child to unenroll if a child does not meet either of these two scenarios.
We are hoping to have celebrations for Yalda, Norouz and the end of year.
All children above the age of 7 are welcome to join any of our classes. Depending on the level of interest, there may be more than one class per level. Our aim is to group children of similar ages in one class as much as possible.
For the introductory class, there is no homework assigned. However, for P1, P2, and higher levels, it is up to the discretion of the teacher. The aim is to make learning enjoyable, so any homework given will be minimal and will supplement the lessons taught in the previous class, preparing the students for the upcoming class.
Certainly! You can enroll your child(ren) in any class that you feel matches their skill level. After completing the placement test, we will recommend a new level if necessary.
There are between 10-14 students in a class.
For the P1 classes and higher we first group the students by language ability and then by age. The Intro class is all 5-6 year old students.
We offer one year of an Intro class and six years of Persian language classes.
Parents are not allowed in the classrooms under any circumstance during class hours. Parents are also not permitted to be in the main hallway of where the classes are during class hours. Parents can stay on the school grounds in other areas away from where the classrooms are, while the child is in school. If at any time we feel that a parent's presence anywhere on campus is a distraction, we will ask the parent to please move to another part of campus. This is also all subject to change based on our relationship with the school we are at.
If a student loses a book, the cost of replacement of the book will be due.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the IRS.
We have a conversational classes for older kids 15+.
Classes are held in Mission Viejo, CA close to the La Paz exit off of the 5.
