Walking into the newly renovated No. 1 Middle School of Moling Town, Xiangcheng City, the campus is clean and hygienic, the roads are neat and flat, the classroom windows are bright and clean, and the sound of books echoes in the campus.
No. 1 Middle School in Moling Town is a local “prestigious school”. During the admission season for new students, the school is always “full.” However, with the obsolescence of campus infrastructure and the loss of outstanding teachers, this once-famous school has only 73 students left, and there were once rumors that it was going to close its doors.

It invested more than 2 million yuan to completely improve the school running conditions on the campus and adopted the group’s integrated school running model to significantly improve the teaching quality.

The real results of “doing practical things in education, relieving the masses’ worries, and providing satisfactory education” have gradually emerged.
