The main building has four floors. The classrooms for first- and second-year students and main school works are finished.

  • On the first floor are the principal's office, administrative office, advisors' and superintendent's offices, mathematics classroom, assembly hall, workshop, audiovisual room, and the Physics Olympiad room. The lobby is located in the center. Beside it are a weight room and a table tennis room.
  • On the second floor, there are four classrooms for first-year students, the first-year student teachers' room, lab, earth science laboratory, an admission officer's room, and a polarizing microscope room.
  • On the third floor, there are four classrooms for second-year students, the second-year student teachers' room, library, computer room, audio/visual laboratory, and an outdated study hall. Also, the third floor is connected by a passage to the cafeteria and outbuilding.
