Studying in 10 best primary and secondary schools in the Czech Republic

Complete secondary education (after grade 9) is provided by several types of educational institutions:

Here students can study 4 or 6 years, depending on the chosen curriculum. At the end of the course students pass subject and language examinations. With the test results, you can submit documents to the selected institution - as a rule, 2/3 of the students enter chosen universities as the level of preparation is high enough for successful university education.

  • Secondary technical schools (stredni technicka skola)

Such schools accept students who plan work or studying in a technical college: education lasts 4 years and ends with a profile exam for maturity.

  • Secondary vocational schools (stredni odborna skola)

Here students study for 2.4 or 5 years. Students who have completed a full course and successfully passed final exams can start working.
