The school has implemented the “Love Reading Huludun, Crossing into a New World” reading program, which cultivates students' textual reading ability, self-learning ability on the Internet, and future competitiveness through dual-reading, technology-aided reading, and beauty-appreciation reading. The program makes reading a highlight of Huludun and opens up a new reading world for students.
