Mr. Conger, the founder and superintendent of International Leadership of Texas (referred to as ILTexas), along with a delegation of three visited our school on June 15th, 2023. ILTexas is the partner school of our school's China-US Cooperative Program of High School Curriculum (AP Class).

He also expressed appreciation for the high level of English teaching at our school and acknowledged that our AP English class and students are "first-class."

In the AP Microeconomics class, the students presented to visiting American teachers the mid-term results of two project-based learning projects: “How to reasonably price the home-stay industry in Nanluoguxiang to achieve profitability” and “Three Year Bill of High School International Education”. They introduced the purpose of topic selection, research methods, mid-term research results and follow-up research plans. In the project-based learning of AP Biology's "Using Modeling Method to Reveal the Mysteries of Life", students were divided into groups to introduce a biological model made of ultra-light clay, which is both scientifically significant and aesthetically pleasing. Students taking AP statistics chose and demonstrated the interdisciplinary project of statistics and psychology called "The Influence of the Group Size of High School Students' Panel Discussions on Critical Thinking of Team Members". Several members of the group introduced the research process , including topic selection, plan formulation, experiment, data collection and analysis. In the presentations of various disciplines, the students' topic selection, knowledge range, research awareness, and English proficiency were unanimously praised by the visiting guests.
