There are 500 students at school. 70% of them live in small towns and villages surrounding Koszalin where the rate of unemployment is very high.
In our school students have vocational practices and workshops once or twice a week, and they also take part in one month practices abroad once a year during the third year of studying.
School Complex Nr 10 in Koszalin is a school with great traditions dating back to the 1960’s. It has been constantly developing and improving. The teachers gather students’ opinions about the school in order to give them the maximum of possibilities. They also send them abroad on vocational practices. The constant need for development and improvement of school's services results in willingness to participate European Union projects like Leonardo da Vinci in order to gain as much experience as possible. Comparing and sharing experiences with similar schools in Poland and abroad will crucially improve the quality of technical education in our region.
