Colegiul National Petru Rares (ROU)
Neamt county is a place of breathing culture and Romanian traditions (the religious book is looked upon as a masterpiece of the Neamt Orthodox Monastery, which also houses one of the first printing presses in the Medieval Romanian Territories). The town and the country have welcomed some of the most renowned Romanian writers such as (Ion Creanga, Calistrat Hogas…).
Founded in 1869, the Junior High and High School “Petru Rares” of Piatra-Neamt is one of the most-renowned secondary schools in Romania. It belongs to the public system of education, preparing students for the baccalaureate: 29 classes with 856 students from 11 to 19 years of age (junior high- 5 classes and high school 24 classes, specializing in Mathematics-Computer Science, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities), 53 teachers and 27 employees belonging to the auxiliary and non-auxiliary staff. Priority is given to Exact Sciences and Foreign Languages: students received excellent results on the national competitive examination in: Computer science, Biology, Chemistry, Astronomy, Physics, French, Social Sciences and English. The high school is also a training center for the ECDL, D.E.L.F., D.A.L.F., Cisco and Oracle Academy exams. Every year the students organize exhibitions on photos and drawings at the high school level and they publish their own literary creations in the high school magazine and in the annual school directory.
Within this project and through exchanges with “Saint-Exupéry” high school, from Saint-Raphael, France, we intend to lay out the foundation, for the future years, for a course on digital art for students specializing in the technical program; that is Mathematics and Computer-science and for modernizing the functioning of our High school library, so that it may enhance its important documentary collection.
Our team consists of: 16 teachers and 46 students.
