Introduction to Caihe Experimental School
Hangzhou Caihe Experimental School (or Caishi, website: http://chsyxx.jgedu.net.cn/) was founded in 1999 and the school became independent in 2002. Principal He Zhiying, the provincial special-grade teacher, was newly awarded the Zhejiang model worker and honored as National Advanced Worker. In December 2007, to create a “private + public” “elite + new school” education mode, she established Hangzhou Caishi Education Group. Within it are two subsidiary schools: Caihe Experimental School and, Qianjiang Xincheng Experimental School. In 2009 the former state-owned Hangzhou Caihe experimental school transformed into a private-owned private junior high school.
In 2016, the group has developed into the scale of 190 faculty members, 49 classes with more than 2000 students and it has graduated students for 14 years. It has become a first-class school with great popularity in Hangzhou.
The Group adheres to the educational philosophy of “May every student learn effectively”, and the school motto of “Advocate morals, Study skillfully, Strengthen body, Improve ability”. Love is sprinkled to all students. The introduction of “Stanford English” teaching successfully utilizes the technology to aid English learning and creates high-score scholastic miracle. The establishment of national “Youth Sports Club” creates the special project of combining physical training with daily study, which cultivates high-quality and specialized talents. In Nanjing Youth Olympic, President Thomas Bach highly praised the project. With professors from Zhejiang University, the school created a simulation of various climates, carrying out artificial climate chamber plant cultivation experiments. The chamber is the first one in junior school in the province. The multi-dimensional lessons expand the curriculum and bring the students a wonderful school life.

Each year, more than 90% of the students in Grade 9 get the chance to study in key high schools and the particularly good students’ later development is quite specific.
