About School ( short description of the school)
Gimnazjum nr 1 in Wschowa is a very small school that currently teaches 156 students ages 13-16. The town is located in the Lubusz Voivodeship, on the west side of Poland, about 150 km from the border with Germany.

Teachers in our school cooperate with parents as well as local society. There are many events that school organises that are open to everyone. Just before the winter break we hosted a concert with three great artists, and ahead of us is St. Patrick’s Day.

Our school is equipped with interactive whiteboards in half of the classes, projectors and computers for teachers in every class, as well as two computer rooms for students. We also have a library and observatory.

There is one big disadvantage in our school – we don’t have our own gym. The students have to walk about 10 minutes one way in order to get to the gym the school rents.

The mission of our school is based on four core values: wisdom, freedom, tolerance and respect. We believe that by teaching students those values we are giving them the right tools that will help them in their future to become independent, responsible and honest citizens.
