Nanjing Foreign Language School, (NFLS ,Simplified Chinese: ÄϾ©Íâ¹úÓïѧУ, nickname Nan-Wai ÄÏÍâ) is a high school located in Nanjing, Jiangsu, People's Republic of China. Founded by PRC's first premier (prime minister) Mr. Zhou Enlai in 1963. It is claimed as one of the most prestigious and competitive high schools in China.

Nanjing Foreign Language School consists of a three-year senior high school and a three-year junior middle school. Elementary graduates from Nanjing usually apply to its junior middle school by taking a series of examinations. The form of the examinations is usually in a flux due to different government policies varying from year to year. The focus of the examinations, however, is always students' academic skills on Chinese, English, and Mathematics.

After three years of study in the middle school, students usually take part in the standardized high schools entrance tests in Nanjing and a special school held qualification test. Qualified middle school graduates will continue their high school studies in the high school.

Nanjing Foreign Language School employs the standard education system of Jiangsu Province in disciplines other than foreign languages. Its uniqueness centers at its foreign language education, in which students may elect one from English, German, French, or Japanese as their major language of concentration. The latter three languages are usually not offered in average Chinese junior high schools or high schools. In addition, the English education is more intensive, and takes twice the time as an average school spends. The classes are conducted by local and foreign teachers with overseas lanuguage textbooks. Students at NFLS therefore attain a higher level of foreign language skills upon graduation.

The current principal of the school (2006) is Mr. Dong Zhengjing.

NFLS is best known for its language education.

NFLS is the best in Nanjing.

NFLS Alumni are all around the world.

Nanjing (Chinese: ÄϾ©; Romanizations: N¨¢nj¨©ng (Pinyin), Nan-ching (Wade-Giles), Nanking (Postal map spelling)) is the capital of China's Jiangsu Province, and a city with a prominent place in Chinese history and culture. Nanjing served as the capital of China during several historical periods, including as the former capital city of Republic of China, and is listed as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Nanjing is also one of the fifteen sub-provincial cities in the People's Republic of China's administrative structure, enjoying jurisdictional and economic autonomy only slightly less than that of a province. In addition, the Republic of China claims it as its de jure capital.

Located in the downstream Yangtze River drainage basin and Yangtze River Delta economic zone, Nanjing has always been one of China's most important cities. Apart from having been the capital of China for six dynasties and of the Republic of China, Nanjing has also served as a national hub of education, research, transportation and tourism throughout history. With an urban population of over five million, it is also the second largest commercial center in the East China region, behind only Shanghai.
