Victoria Leung is a master of the unspoken word, the not-so-innocent question, the sympathetic smile. She knows the danger of saying too much.

In the beginning, they were four teachers and 30 children who gathered every week in a small rented schoolroom. These days, the clanging of a hand-held brass bell summons 1,000 youngsters, ages 5 to 18, to Sunday mornings at the Irvine Chinese School, which has mushroomed over the past 22 years into the largest Chinese cultural school in Southern California.
