THE HISTORY OF LYCEUM
The Lyceum was built in 1999, and in August 28th, 2000, was opened. Since September 1st it has operated as a High-School (Lyceum) of Hungarian language, affiliated with the Reformed Church in Transcarpathia. Pupils study here for 3 years. At the Lyceum they may study from the first class in the mathematical or humanistic class. At the Lyceum the pupils learn Bible Lessons, Church History, Christian Ethics and Church songs. We help our pupils to learn languages, which are connected with the computer terms. After finishing their studies in computer science they are given the opportunity to get an ECDL. They also study to drive a car. After finishing this course they get a driving licence. Pupils learn Ukrainian and English or German.
At the Olimpic competitions our pupils get good results, especially in computer science, mathematics, Hungarian Language and Literature, etc. We do not only study, but also have sections in different kinds of sports, where pupils can go in for sports. Our teams take part and win at the regional and province competitions. The High-Schools choir is well-known to all of Transcarpathia. At the regional and province competitions they always achieve high results.
There is a hostel in which 96 students live. Today more than 116 pupils study at the Lyceum. Pupils usually come from 7 districts. Every year more and more students come to the Lyceum from the upper Tisza region: Yasinya, Rachiv, Vishk and Khust.
The goal of the Lyceum is to make the pupils know about their culture, history, and about valuable things in the life according to God’s words:
„For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2Pet 1,5-8)
Teachers, workers and students of the Reformed High School give thanks to God, Who blesses their work and life every day.
