BJ80 is located in Chaoyang District in a relatively quiet part of town. Beijing itself is quite spread out, and with the amount of green space on campus it was a relatively easy transition from living in the suburbs of southwest Michigan to living in one of the biggest cities of the world.
The school has an entirely self-contained campus that is walled off from the rest of the city. It has three main gates through which we can exit the school and explore the town on our few free hours in the afternoon or the weekends.
The campus consists of a system of buildings connected by wide walkways, crossing green yards that provide lots of area to roam. There are both girl and boy dormitories, classroom buildings, a dining hall, gymnasium with pool, auditorium, athletic fields as well as many other features of a large well-equipped high school.
