Nanjing No. 1 High School is a high school in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China, located on the bank of the Qinhuai River.

History[edit]

The history of Nanjing No. 1 High School dates back to 1907 during the late Qing dynasty. At that time, Sun Shaoyun and three other local leaders established "Chong Wen School" in Nanjing for children from the southern district of Nanjing and provided them a place to study. In 1927, the Nationalist Government decided to set Nanjing as the capital of the Republic of China, and the school was renamed as the Capital City Central Experimental School which was inspired by Cai Yuanpei. It then became the first public middle school in Nanjing.

In the spring of 1927, the National Revolutionary Army occupied southern China. On April 18, Chiang Kai-shek started a national government, with Nanjing as its base. The government declared Nanjing the capital of the Republic of China. After the summer break, Nanjing Municipal Government set up five "experimental" schools in the central, western, eastern, southern, and northern districts respectively. Among them, the central capital experimental school was located at the corner of Zhonghua Avenue and Fuxi Street. The location was the western garden of the governor of Nanjing during the Qing dynasty. From 1902–1903, "Three Rivers Normal School" (now called Nanjing University) was temporarily relocated to this location when the school started operating. Since 1907, Chong Wen School, Jiang Ning First Elementary School, Jiang Ning county junior high school all started at this location.

In the year of 1933, the school was renamed as Nanjing City No.1 High School.

The land that the school currently occupies was previously used as a garden by a Qing dynasty official.

大哉古都秀毓淮钟,
巍巍我校石城之中。

做生活兮洩洩融融。
啊~啊~愿春风广被兮天下为公。
啊~啊~愿春风广被兮天下为公。
