Ningbo Foreign Language School (NBFLS) is a full-time school from grade 7 to grade 12 approved by Ningbo municipal government office in 1991, directly affiliated to Ningbo Educational Bureau. At present, the number of the faculty and students is over 1800. In October 1998, it was accepted as the 18th member school of the National Foreign Language School Association.
In September 2005, NBFLS was moved to 26 Yucai Road. In order to meet the need of school development, it is relocated on 258 South Huanhu Road, Dongqian Lake Tourist and Holiday Resort. The new campus is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and it is overlooking the Dongqian Lake -- the biggest freshwater lake in Zhejiang Province and the most beautiful lake in Ningbo. The new school covers an area of 270 acres, with a floor area of 80,000 square meters, green vegetation as much as 70,000 square meters. The school was established upon an investment of RMB 250 million. Designed with the specifications of “high-level, updated and modernized” in mind, the school is equipped with modern facilities. Air-conditioners and water-heaters are installed in students’ apartments. Services such as medical care, living assistance and security are provided. Various high-tech networks like computers, TV, broadcasting, telephones, multi-functional IC cards and monitoring & alarming system have been installed to make the school one of the top ones with best facilities and equipment.
During the last 18 years since its establishment, Ningbo Foreign Language School has been exploring new ways to run successfully as a foreign language school. Our aims are to help students to form scientific attitudes to knowledge, and to initiate actively the pioneering spirit of practical innovations. Following the laws of developing youths and meeting the demands of society, we’ve created an atmosphere for students to develop their own personalities. Ningbo Foreign Language School has earned its great reputation for the provision of good quality education. The School has distinguished itself in having achieved many honors and prestigious awards.
NBFLS has received several visiting delegations of teachers and students from the States, Australia, Singapore and Germany and has established friendship with Hopkins School in the U.S.A., Perth College in Scotland, Heinrich-Heine-Gesamtschule in Germany, Yishun Junior College, Chinese High School and Nanyang Girls’ High School in Singapore. More than 30 teachers in NBFLS have been sent to the U.S.A., the UK, Germany, Hong Kong, and Australia to advance their language ability as well as their view of culture.
Every year, many students of NBFLS stand out and win prizes in various competitions and contests. Since 1996, nearly 70 NBFLS junior graduates have won the scholarship awarded by the Singaporean government and have been admitted to Chinese High School and Nanyang Girls’ High School in Singapore, of whom more than 40 students have been accepted by world-famous universities, such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT in America, Cambridge, Oxford University in Britain and Singapore State University for their bachelors, masters or doctorate degrees.
With the support of Ningbo municipal government and Ningbo municipal Education Bureau, and with the concern of all citizens in Ningbo, NBFLS will cultivate more and more graduates who have a good command of foreign languages as well as a wide knowledge of Science and Arts. And it will embark on a new journey aiming to be “the Experimental Base of Foreign Language Teaching, the Model School of Fundamental Education For All-Around Development, and an International Exchange Platform in Educational Community”.
