The Affiliated High School of South China Normal University, or Hua Shi Fu Zhong (HSFZ; simplified Chinese: 华南师范大学附属中学; traditional Chinese: 華南師范大學附屬中學; pinyin: Huánán shīfàn dàxué Fùshǔ Zhōngxué) is a high school in Guangzhou, Guangdong, People's Republic of China. It is a key provincial high school directly under the Department of Education of Guangdong Province and SCNU. The school is among the first schools designated as "the A-Class School" by the Provincial Education Bureau.
If unspecified, HSFZ refers to its main campus in Gangding, Tianhe District, Guangzhou. It also has three other campuses, including two in Guangzhou, one in Foshan and one in Shanwei. The main campus is a provincial public school, while the other campuses are private schools.
HSFZ is the result of a series of renames and merges. The origin of HSFZ can be traced back to 1888, when Dr. Andrew Patton Happer established the Christian College in China in Shaji, Guangzhou. From 1888 to 1952, along the Qing Dynasty, the Republic of China, and the People's Republic of China, the predecessors of HSFZ have renamed and merged a couple of times. See Chronicle for details.
In 1952, with the Disciplinary Adjustment of Chinese Higher Education, four high schools merged to form the current HSFZ: the Affiliated High School of Sun Yat-Sen University, the Affiliated High School of Lingnan University, the Affiliated High School of South China Associated University, and the Affiliated High School of Guangdong College of Arts & Science. The school was named the Affiliated High School of South China Teacher's College. From 1960 to 1961, it was named the Affiliated High School of Guangdong College of Science. During the Cultural Revolution, it was named the No. 61 Middle School of Guangzhou. It changed to the current name in 1982.
However, some alumni argued that the establishing date of the school should be 1952 instead of 1888.
From the date of merging in 1952, HSFZ was located in Dongshan District, where it had been merged into Yuexiu District. In 1960, it relocated to the current campus in Tianhe District. The old campus had then developed into another high school, the Guangdong Experimental High School.
In 1993, HSFZ established Guangdong Olympic School, which is a "school inside the school" providing education to gifted students in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The school has 2 classes per grade in junior high (grade 7-9) and 1 class per grade in senior high (grade 10-12). Students in the Olympic School has more chances to explore their interests in sciences.
