Working as the major part of Zhejiang-Minnesota Education Cooperation Project, HFLS has been in exchange with Minnesota’s education bureau since 1986. A 6-month teacher exchange takes place yearly, having benefited more than 15,000 students from two nations in the past 25 years.
HFLS was designated as one of Hanban’s base schools in 2007. Annually, three HFLS teachers are sent to assist two Confucius classrooms in UK and USA that we helped to establish. Their performance is highly praised and often wins coverage in local media. In 2009, HFLS hosted over 70 exchange students from UK through Chinese Bridge, a summer program organized by Hanban.
The network of HFLS’s sister schools covers Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. Many of them are highly respected in their home nation, such as Sidwell Friends School in USA and the King’s School, Grantham in UK. Over 80 of our students yearly benefit from our sister-school exchange programs and we receive more than 10 groups of visitors from overseas institutions.
