LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Having moved into roomier facilities, the Lexington Chinese School wants to become better known for its role in teaching Chinese language and culture.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the school has operated for almost 20 years, but has done so quietly.

Officials say the school is ready to take on a more public face, now that it has more space at Tates Creek High School, where it moved two years ago. School spokeswoman Cindy Lio says the school has room for more students.

Founded in 1995, the school is a non-profit organization that offers Saturday morning classes in Chinese language, heritage and culture.
  
Saturday, the student body includes many Chinese students who have been adopted by Lexington residents and want to know more about their native language and country.
