On the morning of April 9, the Baoshan District Government of Shanghai and East China Normal University (ECNU) signed an agreement to jointly establish “No. 2 High School of ECNU Baoshan Campus”, which plans to enroll 60 students in two classes from Baoshan District this September.
Founded by ECNU in 1958, the No. 2 High School of ECNU is the only experimental and demonstrative senior high school in Shanghai directly under the Ministry of Education. Adhering to the philosophy of “pursuing excellence and cultivating future-minded talents ”, it has formed its own educational characteristics centered around virtue and innovation.
This is not the first cooperation between Baoshan District and ECNU in education. In September 2018, they signed a cooperation agreement to establish Baoshan Schools Alliance of ECNU Elementary Education Group. With the No. 2 High School of ECNU Baoshan Experimental School and the ECNU affiliated Yanghang Middle School and Baoshan Experimental School as the core members, the alliance aims to help the district’s middle schools, primary schools and kindergartens with further development and the sharing of educational resources.
Based on the advantages of ECNU in teacher training and high-quality educational resources and using the brand of No. 2 High School of ECNU as a national top-notch middle school, the Baoshan Campus can expect rapid advances and expanded influence in the near future.
