The safety of our students, their families, and our staff members is always our first priority. We’re extensively updating our policies and procedures in response to COVID-19.
We measure all students’ temperature in the morning upon entering our school. Our staff wear face masks and we encourage our students to do the same as CDC now advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. We also disinfect our facility according to CDC and Texas Health & Human Services guidelines. We have a low teacher to student ratio in each class.
ICC School is open with modified hours from 8:00am to 5:30pm. We are currently giving school tours before school starts because the state guidelines prohibit visitors during school hours. School tours are available with appointments only. Call us today to make an appointment!

The Institute of Chinese Culture (ICC), established in 1970, is Houston’s first Chinese language school. While ICC’s mission is to enhance an appreciation of Chinese language and culture through the operation of a Chinese-language school, ICC school board apprehends the increasing needs of Mandarin Chinese learning in the greater Houston Area and also recognizes the importance of early childhood learning. In 2018, ICC school board decided to embark on the new journey of establishing a Mandarin immersion early childhood learning center for families that desire quality education in a bilingual setting.
ICC School is located at 10300 Westoffice Drive, Houston, TX 77042. Our Westoffice building has gone through an overhaul and became a state of art facility.
