Mikołaj Kopernik High School was opened in 1918 and was named after Anna Jagiellonka who was the Queen in the sixteenth century. However, its history is uneasy and complicated. During World War II (1939-1945) the school building was taken over by Germans and used as a military hospital. Education at school was reactivated in February 1945.
Firstly, it functioned as a single-sex school (only for girls) but in the late 1960s it became co-educational. After the war the school was without a patron because of the government’s ideology of that time. Fortunately, in 1971 it got a new name ‒ Mikołaj Kopernik High School. This eminent Polish astronomer inspires us not to be afraid of reaching even unattainable goals ”Per aspera ad astra”.
Coming up to expectations of students and parents, as well as the needs of present-day life the school provides general education and prepares for university studies. Nowadays it offers many interesting and new profiles, so everyone can find one, which fulfills his/her interests.
