Welcome to the official website of the Complex of General Education Schools in Krosno, which comprises the Nicolaus Copernicus Secondary School No 1 (High School) and the Bilingual Lower Secondary School (Junior High).

All members of the Copernican society: teachers, students with their parents, administration and maintenance staff are free persons who entered this community willingly and  contribute to its development . They are aware that the freedom that goes with it, apart from rights and privileges, involves the burden of responsibility for the choices made. We are trying to create a friendly and pleasant atmosphere so that everyone can feel a part of the community and may always expect help and attention on the side of their peers and tutors, both in educational and private matters. We are also trying to make you remember that it is your duty as well as right to make constant contribution to the perfecting of our school life.

Our efforts are aimed at enabling each and every student to acquire comprehensive knowledge, develop individual talents and particular interests, which are supposed to guarantee their success in the future. We wish our students could be guided by some universal principles such as hard work, honesty, honour and respect to oneself and other people. We want our graduates, equipped with “roots and wings”, to set themselves high standards and put their plans into practice. It is our aim to support their efforts in order to make the time spent in our school valuable in terms of their intellectual and private development as well as to reveal their abilities and launch initiatives preparing them for adulthood.
