About Hoo Cho Chinese School
Hoo Cho School is a neighborhood Chinese language and culture school in Honolulu Hawaii. For nearly a century, Hoo Cho has been teaching the next generation of Chinese in Hawaii to speak Cantonese and Mandarin, read and write calligraphy, and understand Chinese history and philosophy
Hoo Cho's charter to perpetuate the Chinese language and culture in Hawaii, implores us to keep our tuition very low and to nurture our future generations. Maintaining the traditional along with adapting to modern China, we teach both Cantonese and Mandarin, calligraphy as well as computers, and culture along with language. Come see what makes Hoo Cho so unique!
Hoo Cho Shool is one of the oldest chinese schools in Hawaii. Originally an offshoot of Hoo Cho Sha Society, it was created nearly a century ago to teach the children of the Chinese immigrants who came from Canton to work on Hawaii's sugar cane plantations. Many older Chinese in Hawaii fondly remember running through Hoo Cho's original location in Liliha as children. Then in the mid-70's, Hoo Cho found a new permanent location in Palolo Valley, to cater to the needs of the small Kaimuki neighborhood.
Throughout its history, Hoo Cho has fought hard to maintain its charter to perptuate the Chinese language and culture for future generations. While other Chinese schools closed down, Hoo Cho remained as a small but strong independent entity. As times changed, Hoo Cho has adapted, such as teaching Mandarin, which has become important to do business with modern China, as well as maintaining the Cantonese language of our forebearers. Hoo Cho is also one of the only Chinese Schools to implement a computer training facility, to teach Chinese word processing as technology evolves.
