Jiangshan (Chinese: 江山市; pinyin: Jiāngshān) is a county-level city located in Quzhou prefecture, Zhejiang Province, China. Located about 250 kilometers southwest of Hangzhou, the provincial capital, it is the only county-level city in the prefecture. In 1999, Jiangshan's population stood at 563,196. The city is named aptly: Jiang means river and Shan means mountain; a river runs through the city and scenic Mt. Jianglang sits on its border.[1]

USA Today described Jiangshan as a "fairly prosperous city in one of China's most developed provinces".[2]

Education

Among the handful of schools in Jiangshan is Jiangshan Experimental Primary School, which is part of Zhejiang University's networkGlobal TEFL. The program sends native English speakers to their network schools to teach English for periods of 2-4 weeks.[3] Aside from these teachers, Jiangshan sees few Westerners because of its relative geographical obscurity. Jiangshan High School is also in Jiangshan.[2]
