Chapter Summary

It is well-known to all that every year, High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China (HSARUC's) enrollment rate to Tsinghua University and Peking University is several times of that of other key schools. However, about ten years ago, HSARUC had similar reputation compared with other key schools, and the Tsinghua Beijing University enrollment rate was far below that of the Beijing No. Four Middle School. HSARUC still could become a respectable school instead of a so-called "superschool". It should not focus merely on its own benefits and the between-school competitions. HSARUC claims that they never collect donations or extra funds from the students. The author notices that many domestic key schools are no longer fettered by competitions among schools and examination-oriented education.

Keywords: Beijing No. Four Middle School; domestic key schools; donations; examination-oriented education; HSARUC; Peking University; superschool; Tsinghua University
