We have launched new subjects that are advanced in technology and vigorous in meeting the market demands in cooperation with Dingsheng Century Technology Development Company. The trans-regional cooperation has been expanded. Responding to the Party’s call on developing the west, supporting the west and the revolutionary regions, we have made cooperation with many schools in the west areas successively, such as the ones in Xinjiang, Yan’an, Luochuan, Zunyi, Liaoning Province and Jilin Province with the resource superiority from capital.

We try our best to create a harmonious and democratic atmosphere for cultivating talents according to the idea of “based on educating persons”. Our school adheres to the principle of educating talents through teaching, educating talents through activities and educating talents through service for many years. Combining the actual situation of our school and the students’ characteristics, we have put forward the idea of “success education”. “Success education” has been carried out on the basis of students’ development with the purpose of seeking their development on potential and promoting their qualities in every aspect. Our school offers the “second class” through rich and colorful extracurricular activities, such as the sports and culture festival, chorus competition, speech contest and some large performances for public welfare. These activities help the students to broaden their eyes, consolidate their professional skills, develop and build their practicing capacity, mould their temperament and character, purify their soul and temper their willpower. Moreover, “success education” has provided the stage for the students to show their characteristics and the chance of success as well.
In the past few years, several hundred of students in our school have won a large number of first prizes in the national, municipal and district competitions, including the contests of dancing, art, rhythmic gymnastics, piano, vocal music, poem reciting, story telling and so on.
The guidelines for the future development of the school is to please the students and their parents by high quality education, to attract more excellent teachers by school culture, to manage the school by humanism and high discipline, to boost teaching by well-equipment system, to strengthen typical subjects by professional knowledge and skills. All above directly aim to become top vocational school in Beijing.
