What is the name of the high school in China

High school in china

In China, every young person goes to school for at least 9 years. You either attend 5 years of elementary school and 4 years of middle school or 6 years of elementary school and 3 years of middle school. Middle school is attended up to the age of 14 to 15 years. This is followed in China by secondary schools for students aged 15 to 18, divided into general and vocational branches. Participants in our China High School program will attend one of these secondary schools.

Everyday school life in China

The schools in China are all-day schools; the lessons usually end between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. In the morning there is usually a "sports break" on the schedule, during which the students do gymnastics together. At lunchtime, the students have a 2 hour break for lunch and to rest.


Students attending a high school in China should have great flexibility and be quite independent; then your stay in this fascinating country will be an unforgettable experience. Prior knowledge of Chinese is not required for the high school stay in China, but it is helpful.
