The report of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China puts “implementing the strategy of rejuvenating the country through science and education and strengthening the support of talents for modernization” in a more important position, highlighting the basic, leading, and overall status and role of education in the new era. The Bao’an District Party Committee and Government always adhere to the “first strategy” of giving priority to the development of education, and spare no effort to provide education that satisfies the people, providing strong support for the realization of “good nursing for kids, good education for students” and assistance for urban development, further strengthening citizens’ sense of gain and happiness for high-quality and balanced education, and further improving the influence and demonstration of Bao’an Education.

The new construction of 9-year school in Songgang Commercial Center urban renewal unit of Songgang Subdistrict is located in Songgang Subdistrict, Bao’an District, Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, at the intersection of Songyuan Road and Songhe North Road. The Songgang Area where the project is located will become an important area of the western center of Shenzhen. According to relevant plans, the western center will become a comprehensive city center with Cantonese characteristics suitable for business and living, with perfect public service system, intertwined blue and green public spaces, and prominent historical and cultural heritage in the future. With the goal of “making education become the core competitiveness of Bao’an District”, Bao’an District Government implements the education development plan as the direction, and taking “safety, stability, development, and improvement” as the guidance to fully promote the construction of educational facilities in Songgang Area.

The project hopes to select the best among the excellent school design schemes through open and fair design bidding, which can not only implement the educational development concept of Bao’an District, but also integrate and coexist with the surrounding urban environment and face the future. After the project is completed and put into use in the future, it will help to further improve the basic education facilities in Bao’an District, alleviate the pressure on school admission quotas in the district, and lay a foundation for talent cultivation and social development.
