Zrínyi Miklós Secondary School

 Zrínyi Miklós Secondary Grammar school looks back on 106 years of history. The beginnings date back to 1895, when teaching started with two classes. The building which houses the school was finished in 1897. Since its opening, the school has become an important intellectual workshop of Zalaegerszeg
A special feature about the school is the juxtaposition of what is old and new. Traditions are honoured and held in esteem, but at the same time Zrínyi is a very innovative institution. For the past decades the framework of education has greatly changed. The traditional 8-form-school, which was replaced by 4 forms in 1950, was restarted in 1997. The school offers specialization in languages, Maths, Science and Art subjects, and provides all students courses in computing. The school is competitive. One of the main goals is to prepare students for higher education. More than 90% of students pass the entrance examinations and get admission to different universities and colleges.

Although academic excellence is at the centre, life at Zrínyi is not all work and no play. All-around excellence is also cared about. There is a range of activities outside the classroom from rock bands to school choir and different sports training. It is also important that students enjoy their years at school.

Thanks to its outstanding results, the school has made a reputation in the region and its name has become known all over Hungary as well. Its high standard of education has been acknowledged with several awards given by both the General Assembly of Zalaegerszeg and the General Assembly of Zala County.
