USTC School (K1-K12)

The USTC School was established in June 10, 1971, as a benefit for USTC faculty and staff. It consists of the Primary School Department, the Secondary School Department and the High School Department. It provides the school-age children of the USTC faculty and staff with the complete 12-year education previous to college. For those who are exceptionally gifted, they can be admitted into USTC early as young freshmen through passing the early entrance exam.

The school system has a faculty of 194 teachers, many of whom have been awarded national, provincial or municiple titles. And the students also won prizes in national ompetitions. The performance of USTC School students in the standard high school entry exams and the standard college entry exams both, in terms of the average score and the destination distribution, both rank top in Hefei City.

The School is equipped with a line of advanced learning facilities, e.g. observatory, language labs, gym, computer labs, and multi-media classrooms.It attaches critical importance to the development of children's learning capabilities, instead of the knowledge they acquire from school. It also encourages students to do self exploration, pursue their personal interests and discover their own merits. This paves good way for the children in the long run as they become capable learners and happy doers.
