Our school is a general secondary school with students from age 14 to 18. Our task is to give general knowledge to and prepare our students for higher education. Our students study a number of subjects, such as mathematics, history, Hungarian literature and grammar, biology, physics, chemistry, music, arts, P.E. and modern languages, each subject for a set number of years. Each student in our school has to attend lessons in 2 languages one of which is English and the other can be German, French, Italian or Spanish, as chosen by the student. We have fixed classes throughout the four years with 34-36 students each. We have four classes in each year, altogether 16. Each class has a different name (A, B, C or D) according to the specialisation it is involved in. We have classes specialised in all four of these languages and also classes with an elevated number of history and literature lessons.

We also celebrate each national holiday with a special performance and from time to time we invite performers from different cultural areas.
