...We belong to the Club of the Oldest Schools in Poland...
The school opened its door for students on the 7th of October 1921. The first organizer of "Unia" was Rev. Kazimierz Gostyński, an outstanding figure for Lublin's education, while Marceli Opitz was its first headmaster. Since September 2010 Mr Grzegorz Lech , who is also the School’s graduate, has served as headmaster.
From the early days of the School the emphasis was placed on a high level of learning and education. The evidence of this is the fact that our school has always been classified high in national rankings of the best upper-secondary schools in Poland.
