For an Ideal School
Liu Wei, ECNU Xiping Bilingual School
What defines an ideal school? This is a question that has occupied my thoughts throughout my career in education. Serving as a National School Inspector for two terms, I've had the privilege of visiting numerous educational institutions across diverse regions. Yet, the concept of the perfect school always eluded me. When I made the decision to leave my hometown and assume the role of principal at ECNU Xiping Bilingual School in Xiamen, many couldn't fathom why I, already heading a nationally renowned institution, would start afresh in an unfamiliar place. To their queries, I may not have had a concise response, but deep down, I've always aspired to lead a truly exceptional school.
My goal is to guide a school that embodies excellence. What, then, characterizes a truly exceptional school in my view?
Accurate Positioning: A great school should have a clear and precise educational mission and vision, ensuring it knows its purpose and direction.
Systematic Education System: It should boast a well-structured and comprehensive educational framework, designed to support students' holistic growth and development.
Diverse Course Offerings: An outstanding school should provide a wide array of courses, offering students choices that cater to their unique interests and talents.
Exceptional Faculty: A stellar teaching staff, dedicated to nurturing students and delivering top-notch education, is a hallmark of a great school.
Vibrant School Culture: An exceptional school cultivates a positive, inclusive, and supportive atmosphere that encourages student engagement, creativity, and a sense of belonging.
Superlative Educational Environment: It should provide a visually appealing and well-equipped campus that promotes a conducive atmosphere for learning.
Strong Research Culture: A culture of inquiry and innovation should be fostered, encouraging students and faculty to engage in research and stay at the cutting edge of knowledge.
High-Quality Teaching: Exceptional teaching should be at the core of the school's mission, ensuring students receive an outstanding education that equips them for success.
I am profoundly grateful to East China Normal University for bringing me to ECNU Xiping Bilingual School. I firmly believe that this institution embodies the characteristics of an exceptional school that can help me realize my lifelong dream in the field of education.

The school's architecture, envisioned by the renowned Chinese architect Mo Ping, pays homage to the timeless elegance of renowned educational institutions worldwide while seamlessly incorporating the distinctive architectural elements of Xiamen. Amidst the juxtaposition of white marbles and red bricks, a design emerges that is both unassuming yet captivating, understated yet refined. This architectural form masterfully incorporates townhouses, bay windows, intricate carvings, and symmetrical alignment. It speaks a unified architectural language, meticulously addressing every detail, resulting in a harmonious fusion of the built environment with the natural surroundings. This synthesis presents a perfect blend of classicism and modernism.
When it comes to the planning and design of the schoolyard, a deeper interpretation of the concepts of a school and a yard unfolds. Within the confines of limited space, an invaluable garden oasis takes shape, achieving a harmonious interplay of architectural art, landscape aesthetics, and public art. The objective is to cultivate a human-centric, organic, and multi-dimensional cultural ambiance, with a relentless focus on innovation and artistic expression within the educational environment. This endeavor aims to nurture the future competencies of our students through the very fabric of their surroundings.
