Chinese studying is based on the Chinese national curriculum, and the subject has been transformed by HD Beijing School. The highly original course units are meant for a three-in-one pedagogy of “single-text reading, whole-book reading and traditional Chinese culture reading” which, combined with extensive reading, lays a solid foundation for the development of each student’s mother tongue.

HD Beijing School strives to accommodate different degrees of English proficiency in speaking, reading, writing and listening at different levels, meanwhile HD School also emphasizes English learning in the student’s daily life on campus, projects off campus, and via in-house activities. In teaching mathematics, the school uses nationwide mainstream teaching materials along with English supplements. Through genuine investigations, it is hoped that students will recognize, calculate, understand, and solve application problems from different perspectives to gradually improve their mathematics, sense of logic, and problem-solving abilities.
