It is the Gymnasium, which is self- improving, planning changes and taking responsibility for the realisation of educational goals.In the 21st century schools are facing great changes, their work is influenced by various factors and new social challenges, such as globalisation, the rapid development of modern technologies, low birth rate, economical situation, moral values, based on freedom, democracy and tolerance.
