Beijing Chen Jing Lun High School (simplified Chinese: 北京市陈经纶中学; traditional Chinese: 北京市陳經綸中學; pinyin: Běijīng chénjīnglún zhōngxué, also abbreviated as BJCJL), is a highly renowned high school located in downtown CBDs in Beijing. It is one of the first series of beacon high school in Beijing. It was founded in 1921 by a Japanese philanthropist Yasuzo Shimizu (清水安三 Shimizu Yasuzō ). It has undergone a series of change in name from Chong Zhen School (崇祯学园), to Beijing Female No.4 High School (北京女子第四中学) in 1949, to Chao Yang High School (朝阳中学) during the Cultural Revolution. In 1991,it was finally christened after Hong Kong entrepreneur Chan King-Luen (陈经纶, Chen Jinglun).
In the year of 1921, Japanese philanthropist Yasuzo Shimizu (清水安三 Shimizu Yasuzō ), who had also founded Obirin University (樱美林学院) in Tokyo, arrived at the suburban Beiping, the former name of Beijing. As a missionary of the Japanese Christian United, Yasuzo Shimizu witnessed the impoverished life of suburban Beiping citizens and decided to open a school to educated and help disadvantaged girls in Chaoyang Men Wai Avenue.On May 28, 1921, Shimizu officially started his Zhong Zhen School (崇祯学园),thus the beginning of the turbulent yet shiny history of Beijing Chen Jing Lun High school. Starting with a small court yard, the school at that time recruits only women,who took classes and worked at the same time.
With the founding of the People's Republic of China, the school was officially handed over to Beijing Education Bureau as a public school and was renamed Beijing Female No.4 High School, recruiting only women students.
In 1991, Hong Kong entrepreneur Chen Jinglun donated RMB 20million to Chaoyang High School to renovate the old campus, and the school was renamed Beijing Chen Jing Lun High School by Beijing municipal government[2 ].
The campus is about the size of 5.5 standard soccer field, about 40,000 square meters. As proudly claimed by its students, the campus building is garden-like. The paths in the campus is all paved with blue rectangular quartz rock. The about 20% of the main campus area is cover with grass and trees like gingko, apricot and Chinese scholartree(槐树).
The school contains one lab building, one auditorium building,one dorm building and four teaching buildings, from A1 to A4. The architecture is in Spanish style.
The playground consist of a official sized soccer field, several basketball courts and a regular sized 400 meters track. There is also a olympic sized swimming pool in the auditorium building.
The playground and the 400m lap track, however, are dilapidated and require a major overhaul. Many parts of the synthetic fiber layer covering the lap-track are peeled off. (they've fixed that)
