Hangzhou No.14 High School is a provincial level key high school located at 580,Fengqi road, Hangzhou, Zhejiang. The school is located at the center of the city. In front of MItuo Mountain and beside West Lake, the school is energized by the atmosphere of Baochu Mountain and Baopu Monastery, as well as the luxurious shopping of Yan'an Road and Wulinmen. The entire proportion is about fifty thousand square meters and the building area is about thirty thousand square meters. Although its history goes back more than 100 years, it is not the oldest school in Hangzhou. And its target is to make the campus modern, luxurious and delicate. There are Hangzhou Senior Middle School and Hangzhou No.2 high School which were founded in 1899. On the other hand, Hangzhou Xuejun high School was set up in 1956 and Hangzhou Zhongce Vocational School in 1979.

In the 30th year of Emperor Guangxu’s reign, a group of students including Shao Zhang(绍张), Sun Zhimin and Hu Huan came back to Hangzhou after graduating in Japan, and applied to establish “Hangzhou Girls’ School”, and wished this school to become the first girls’ school in China.

The application was approved, and the school opened on May 2, 1904. Lady Gu Wenyu was the first principal, and there were 45 girls at that time.

Some years later, the school moved the place from Jishan Square to its current location on Fengqi Road. The street was originally called “Copper Money” in Chinese, but has since changed to “Phoenix Rising.”

No.14 Secondary School went through the Second Sino-Japanese War, adding to the interesting history of the school. In November 1937, the Japanese landed in Hangzhou Bay, and the students were forced to move from its Fengqi Road location to the rural city of Tonglu. A month later, they moved again, this time to Chunan, and used some parts of the Chunan County Middle School. Unfortunately, sinking into Thousand Island Lake in 1959, the old Chunan County Middle School was buried along with the capital city of the Southern Song Dynasty forever. Although the Japanese came, then left, then came again, then left again, the cultural spirit of the Girls’ School remained. In 1937, teacher Zhen Jisu and another five teachers moved to Shanghai, where they established the Shanghai Municipal Hangzhou Girls' School on Changde Road, Shanghai. The next year, on Jiaozhou Road, the school formally became Shanghai Private Nanping Girls' School. Shanghai is not a quiet place, however, so in the spring of 1941, the school returned to Hangzhou, this time to Xinmin Road, and began the term on November 1 using the Tongjiangqiao Middle School’s campus. In the spring of 1949, the school moved back to Fengqi Road, this time permanently, and in 1956, changed its name to Hangzhou Girls' High School. The first headmaster of this school was Gu Wenyu, but now a new leader, Qiu Feng holds this title. Another campus of No.14 Secondary School is located at 500,Long Teng Road,Hangzhou.It has a 400-meter runway, a rich collection of books, and excellent teaching facilities. Hang Zhou No.14 high school is the first high school that opened a climbing course to students in Hangzhou .[1]
