Austin’s Chinese Immersion School
Welcome to Little Tiger!
We are a Pre-K through Fifth Grade Chinese immersion school located in central Austin. As a full Chinese immersion school, Little Tiger is unique in the Austin-area.
Little Tiger students grow their Chinese language proficiency through learning and creative play. Subject areas include language, math, social studies, science, and the arts.
Health & Safety
Little Tiger reopened to in-person learning for the Fall 2020 semester with extensive COVID-19 risk reduction strategies in place.
Our layered approach includes measures such as masking and physical distancing as well as a focus on outdoor learning and indoor air quality, filtration, and ventilation.
Whole Child Approach
Our “Whole Child” approach emphasizes each child’s overall growth, including: cognitive, language, social-emotional, and physical development.
Our goal is to foster a fun, creative, engaging environment where students flourish academically and develop their curiosity through project-based learning.
Interested? We’d love to meet you.
Our collaborative team consists of 15 experienced teachers and administrators, each with at least masters-level academic training.

Our campus, located in the North Loop area of Austin, is made up of several classroom buildings and a large outdoor play area with a garden. Our newest classroom building, designed by Murray Legge Architecture, received a 2020 Design Award from the Texas Society of Architects.

Learning at Little Tiger
Small class size. With low student-to-teacher ratios, we are able to practice differentiated learning. Students receive tailored, small-group lessons and learn based on their developmental readiness.
Math. Using the innovative Singapore Math Curriculum, our math program emphasizes critical thinking and creative approaches to problem solving.
English. While instruction and activities occur in Chinese, students’ English skills develop with the help of a dedicated English Language Arts staff. Kinder and elementary students receive regular, focused instruction in English reading and writing.
