Gymnázium Jura Hronca
Gymnázium Jura Hronca (Jur Hronec Secondary School) is an elite secondary school in Bratislava, widely regarded as one of the best schools in Slovakia. Bearing the name of Jur Hronec, a renowned Slovak mathematician, the school was founded in 1959 as an 11-year secondary school focusing on natural sciences, primarily mathematics and computer science.
After a few years, however, Gymnázium Jura Hronca has also started guiding its pupils to civic initiatives through one of the most successful debate clubs in the country. Having the status of the most liberal and opinion-leading secondary school in Slovakia, Gymnázium Jura Hronca is far more than just an educational institution.
Having the status of the most liberal and opinion-leading secondary school in Slovakia, Gymnázium Jura Hronca is far more than just an educational institution.
Its complexity and variety in all academic disciplines has only been strengthened in June 1994, when the school acquired the status of an International Baccalaureate World School - being the first in Slovakia. Even nowadays, it is the only secondary school in Slovakia offering education according to international guidelines free of charge.
Some of the school's most known alumni include politicians, businessmen or the former governor of the Slovak National Bank. Students coming from Gymnázium Jura Hronca have studied at universities such as Harvard, Oxford or Cambridge and many of our alumni are continuing in this tradition every year.
