The school, with a capacity of 405 students, opened on August 22, 2018. It includes a museum related to Chinese-relevant topics.[3] Nikol Pashinyan, the Prime Minister of Armenia, and Tian Erlong, the Ambassador of China to Armenia, attended the school's opening.[1] The school building and supplies had a cost of over $12 million,[2] and the funds to do so came from the Chinese government.[1]

It functions as a boarding school for students who are not from the Yerevan area.[2]
