It is located in the southern suburbs of Xi'an, and covers an area of over 34,000 square meters. The school's staff consists of 235 people, and hosts more than 4,000 students. Since 1995, Xigongda High School has rapidly developed. From 2000 to the present, 96% of its students have scored at or above the required score on their college entrance examination boards to get into leading universities.

Xigongda High School has trained four of the top students in Shaanxi Province. Through 2008, 351 students had been admitted to Peking University and Tsinghua University.

History[edit]

Founded in 1971, the school became one of the key schools in Shaanxi by 1985,[1] and eventually "the demonstrate school in Shaanxi" on 14 April 2009.[2]
