OUR STORY

Houston Dragon Academy is a comprehensive school, that mainly focuses on fostering student’s Chinese and Mathematics learning, as well as preparing for College Admission Examinations.



In 2016, in order to make it convenient for children who lived near Medical Center to learn Chinese in the neighborhood, Instructor Wang Rong founded the Houston Dragon Academy, hoping that every child could learn here with joy, mature healthily, and help them to realize their hope and dream.

The campus is located at the Houston Medical Center, near West University. In the vicinity, there are various hospitals such as the famous MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas Children’s Hospital, and others. There is also a KUMON and a Houston Public Library at Stella Link. The academy will admit students on 8/22/2016, and classes officially begin on 8/27/2016. The school’s predecessor is a French language school, with many classrooms and activity rooms, very well-equipped facilities, and a playground. The campus is quiet, convenient, and extremely safe.

Merrily learn Chinese, effortlessly learn Mathematics
