It has students from G1 to G12, and the total enrollment now is 7000 students.

Dongguan, being located in the mid-south of Guangdong Province and in the east of the Pearl River Delta, is 50 kilometers (about 31 miles) south of Guangzhou, and 90 kilometers (about 56 miles) north of Shenzhen. It is 47 nautical miles from Hong Kong as well as 48 nautical miles from Macau. Currently, the city also plays a vital role in the communication between Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
In the year of 331 Dongguan was first built as a town but the history of this area can be traced back to the Neolithic Age. About 150 years ago, the famous Incineration of Opium during the Opium War took place in Humen Town of this city, opening a new chapter of Chinese modern history. Now, visitors have opportunities to visit the most complete ancient battlefield remains in the world.
During the current era of reform and opening-up in China, Dongguan's economy maintains a substantial and rapid development, making the city an important international industrial city, known as World Factory. By 1988, it was upgraded to be a prefecture-level city of Guanggong Province.
At present, covering an area of 2,465 square kilometers (about 952 square miles), the city administers 28 towns and 4 subdistricts. In the year 2005, the population of this region reached 7,506,300, including 5,849,800 temporary residents. Additionally, Dongguan is the hometown of 280,000 overseas Chinese and more than 70,000 compatriots in Hong Kong. All of them have made lots of contributions to the development of their hometown.
Dongguan City is located at the south-center of Guangdong Province, lying on the east of the Pearl River Delta. The advantageous geographical position brings to Dongguan a pleasant climate and rich resources. Under the influence of the tropical and semi-tropical monsoon climate, the local weather is mild with an average temperature of 23.1℃, 37.8℃ the highest and 3.1℃ the lowest. Rainstorms and typhoons often occur from June to October. However, a series of local festivals are held during these times, attracting lots of visitors every year.
When you come here in the harvest season, you must sample some local agricultural products such as bananas, litchi, longan, pineapples, etc. And the 115.98 kilometers (about 72 miles) long coastline supplies the locals with abundant seafood which is the main ingredient of local dishes. Don't forget to try it in your travels.
Dragon boat festival is held in Dongguan every year. Shatian Town in Dongguan was the first place that was rewarded as Town of Dragon Boat by the Chinese Dragon Boat Committee. In additional to the traditional festival, the most famous is the "Maishen Festival", also called Water-splashing Festival. on that day(Lunar Feb. 2), thousands of people get together in the Dongkeng County, splashing water, viewing cars(decorated by flowers), shopping and so on.
