There are 38 classes in our school including 8 made up of students from Xinjiang Autonomous Region. We have a strong and professional faculty force, a beautiful environment and advanced facilities.
Our school adheres to the philosophy of “laying a solid foundation for every student’s future success and setting up a platform for every teacher’s further development”, focusing on the cultivation of students’ introspection about self-directed growth and leading students’ cultural consciousness on lifelong development. We are actively involved in the “four-self” (self-confidence, self-reliance, self-improvement and self-discipline) education featuring self-directed development, taking the self-directed education of students as the main form, school life, home life and social practice the main carriers. Our efforts have had a remarkable effect.
Our school is now taking an in-depth form of the curriculum and teaching in order to realize the school-based curriculum development of foundation courses, the diversification of extension courses and the individualization of inquiry courses.
