new times. It was awarded Medal of the National Education Commission and
the silver medal Cracow – European City of Culture. The school has
enjoyed popularity thanks to a high level of education confirmed by high

atmosphere, good location and pupils’ safety.
We have modern facilities and a wide range of extra-curricular activities,
aimed at pupils who want to continue their learning at university or develop
their talents and interests. We are a friendly school which combines
tradition with modernity.
The main emphasis is placed on thorough preparation of pupils for the
matriculation examination which will enable them to study at university.
Results achieved by our graduates at the matriculation examination are
high, far exceeding the average results in Małopolska.
It is equally important for us to show young people the way of individual
development, prepare them to undertake various challenges,
accept social roles and promote humanitarianism.
The school houses 20 big classrooms, well-equipped laboratories with
computer terminals, full-size gymnasium, table-tennis room, main hall with
the stage, modern library with multi-media centre, two modern computer
classrooms, canteen and photocopier.
Teachers and pupils have at their disposal a variety of educational aids,
including audio-visual equipment, video microscope, multimedia projectors,
telescope and a permanent access to the Internet.
The psychologist and educator alongside the teaching staff support pupils
and help achieve their potential. Young people have an opportunity
to get involved in charity and voluntary work. Students in difficult
financial situation are provided with financial help from European or social
grants as well as support of Parents’ Association.
The school takes pride in its long tradition of relations with foreign
schools which facilitate foreign language learning and broaden the knowledge
of culture of other countries. We organize a trip to London as well as
exchanges with schools in Germany and Italy participating in international
interdisciplinary projects. Pupils involved in them undertake academic and
artistic activities in cooperation with peers from partner schools.
For several years our pupils have taken part in European Youth Forum which
enables them to perfect their language skills while creating common
projects during photography, music, press, dance and theatre workshops.
Our pupils achieve success in school Olympics, interschool math
competition, photography, poetic and recitation contests, competition for
the best computer program, first aid and sports competitions.
The school provides an opportunity to develop pupils’ interests and
talents by engaging them in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
We offer e.g. theatre, film, poetry clubs, and extra classes aimed at
preparing pupils for the matriculation examination. We also pay special
attention to pupils with learning difficulties, for whom we organize
additional classes in particular subjects. Pupils can take part in sport
and recreation. The activities currently offered encompass a range of
sports including basketball, volleyball, football, aerobics, and swimming.
We also organize numerous competitions as well as outings to the theatre,
cinema and museums, camps and field trips. Pupils have an opportunity

organizations, like a Hospice, Children’s Home, Old People’s Home,
Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, etc.

charity actions, inspire pupils to take up new initiatives.
Every year they attend a training session which prepares them to plan and
accomplish their tasks. Pupils Council represents our school in city
and district councils. Its representative is a member of Youth District
