Based on the field study conducted at Beijing Haidian Boarding School ("BHBS"), the author of this research report attempts to uncover the myths of the current alternative school educational system in China. Through my one-month visit at BHBS and her personal experiences gained from my contacts with the students, the teachers and the parents, the author attempts to understand the pros and cons of the current alternative school system in China. This research focuses on relationships among students, teachers, and parents, and uncovers factors that interfere with good relationships. By understanding the nature of the issues involved in the current system, the author tries to find meaningful solutions to enhance the quality of the current alternative school system in China.
