No matter in science competitions or in Gaokao, the students from Shenzhen Middle School always top in Shenzhen and even in Guangdong Province. Apart from helping the students to get excellent scores, the school also puts emphasis on students' comprehensive development, in order to let every student get their advantages into full play. The cooperation with Tencent this time, intends to provide a better environment and greater opportunities for the school's talents.
