Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. P.Skargi in Grójec is an upper secondary school preparing students aged 15-18 for university education. The main profiles which the school offers are: maths-physics-ICT, biology-chemistry, maths-geography, humanities, geography-economics, foreign language.
The school, founded in 1912, is one of the oldest in the district of Grojec and in the whole Mazowiecke Province. The school is situated in a small town of Grojec (about 17 thousand inhabitants), which makes it easier to be in touch with parents in order to deal with matters immediately. The surrounding area of Grojec is mainly a fruit-growing area located in the centre of Poland, 40 km south of Warsaw.
There are 45 full-time teachers and about 500 students in the school. Its students come from different social backgrounds, many come from rural areas. They often need to be strongly motivated to take an active part in school life. There are a few clubs and organizations at the school. The school has been a co-organizer of a national English song festival for the last twenty years and has coordinated or participated in several extremely successful Comenius and Erasmus+ projects since 2010. Still, its students need additional, multicultural activities so that they can be more actively involved and co-operate more willingly, understanding the importance of their cultural roots and respect for different sociocultural backgrounds. The students feel the need of, and have deep interest in, learning about other cultures and making friends with students from abroad.
In 2015 the school underwent a thorough external evaluation in three fields and received a very high score for its high external exams scores and quality of teaching (ABB). The cooperation with a variety of institutions (e.g. Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw University, WAT) lets our school broaden its educational offer.
