中国日报网：Jiangxi Xishan School seeks distinctive teaching approach
More than 50 journalists from network media groups across the country visited the Xishan School of Jiangxi province on Dec 8 as their second stop on the 2014 national network media tour in Jiangxi.
The school, founded in 2003, is a private school adopting military and closed-off management. With an area of 1,028 mu (68.53 hectares), it features functions of kindergarten, primary school, middle school and high school, highlighting sports education.
As a prestigious school in Nanchang, it has received over 300 national, provincial, municipal and county-level honors, including recognitions of "Ecological School" and "Model for China's Private Schools". Hundreds of high school students here were recruited by the country's key universities, such as Peking University, Renmin University and Tianjin University.
In addition to academic excellence, the school attaches equal importance to extra-curricular activities. Students are encouraged to participate in sports, music, dance, drama and arts, all of which aim to facilitate the overall development of students.
Recently, the school was designated as a key youth soccer training base. In the future, it will continue to focus on the student-oriented education principle and improve education quality to promote itself as a world-famous school.
