Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions in our lives. It presents the most intense period of growing-up, when we form our attitude towards the world and choose our profession.
Outstanding learning and teaching is placed among the main objectives of II. gimnazija Maribor, achieved through The National Grammar School Programme, the National Grammar School Programme – Sport Classes and The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, where the students score excellent results on their final school-leaving external exams.
That is only one of the important objectives of our school, though. The development of creativity is equally important, as we believe that each individual possesses creative potential, which is to be discovered and developed. More than 70 various extra-curricular activities enable each student to develop his or her potential in the areas of his or her creativity.
We pay a lot of attention to the development of mutual relationships. In fact, the very relationships between the students and teachers received the highest praise by the students. The solidarity development programmes fulfil the important role of the school, which is the care for the underprivileged groups and the relationship with the wider community.
The widely established international cooperation (Austria, Germany, Italy, Israel, China, Serbia, Sweden, Poland etc.) integrates students into the international community and provides understanding of cultural and language differences.
The enrolment of our students in numerous prestigious foreign universities best meets our ambitions and intentions of being the school which opens all doors.
Participation in development projects and the clearly defined school development strategy, together with measurable long-term objectives, guarantee school development and the provision of the excellent education for the future and present students.
All teachers are grouped into departments ranging from teachers of Slovenian, English, German, French and Spanish, Mathematics, Information Technology, History and Geography, Physical Education, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Arts and Economics.
Some of the departments’ assignments are preparing the curriculum, planning education processes, familiarizing themselves with new developments in their professional field, helping young colleagues and teacher trainees, coordinating written exams, implementing unified assessment criteria, preparing the “Matura exam”, and above all, teaching effectively in class.
The Student Council consists of class representatives and the Council president, who is elected in the first week of October. The president’s term lasts one school year. Indeed, the Student Council is independent in its activity, however it needs to follow the house and school rules. Its duties are organizing extra-curricular and social activities, school parties and concerts, the “Culture Marathon”, helping students and making suggestions to improve life at the school.
