The Beijing Tibetan Middle School has produced many students who are now contributing to the reconstruction of the Tibet autonomous region. The school joins the rest of China as examination fever for the national college entrance exam, or gaokao, heats up in June, Du Lianyi reports.
On the north of Beijing, a Tibetan-style compound stands out among soaring skyscrapers. It is the home to Beijing Tibetan Middle School, the largest secondary school for Tibetans in inland cities. The school now has more than 800 students from different prefectures in the Tibet autonomous region. Launched in 1987, the school has trained nearly 5,000 middle and high school students for Tibet. Many of them have returned to Tibet to contribute their skills to reconstruct the autonomous region.
