“Super middle schools” are a special phenomenon arising from China's modern education reform. They refer to a group of super-sized middle schools with a high enrollment rate established by a group of schools located in cities that monopolize teacher resources and high-quality students. “Super high schools do broaden the channels of social mobility to a certain extent, but they also break the level playing field of secondary schools.” This paper is devoted to studying how these “super high schools” come into being and what are the deep reasons behind their emergence. This paper not only finds that the phenomenon of super middle schools in China is the result of political, economic, and cultural factors, in line with the general market law and rational choice of students, but also some local government's promotion. The purpose of this paper is committed to summarizing what cause super high school’s emergence found in previous studies and providing help for the research on how to solve this phenomenon.
