Beijing National Day School (BNDS) is a national middle school in Beijing, China. It was established by the Central Military Committee in 1952. Revolutionaries of the committee, Zhou Enlai and Luo Ronghuan, wanted to form a school that provided a higher quality of education for young people. The result of their dreams was Beijing National Day School, named by Marshal Nie Rong Zhen as a tribute to the National Day of China.
