School Background:

The grammar school began its work of educating students in 1920 in Csongrád. Since that time the grammar school has continued to be the main part of the institution, but beginning in the 1960s several kinds of day and correspondence continuing education sections were also established in viticulture, woodworking, preschool education and mechanical engineering.

In 1989 a pedagogy section was added, in 1990 an eight-year grammar school section, and in 1996 a tourism and catering section as well.  These latter sections continue to be offered.

The school dormitory was first opened to students in 1930, and currently provides residence during the week for 106 female students.

In the 2005-06 academic year, Batsányi János includes 26 different class sections and 820 pupils.


School Property and Grounds:

The school operates in three different buildings:

  • The Main Building:

    In 1913 architect Ybl Lajos drew up plans and construction was started. On November 13th, 1920 it was opened for use and the grammar school commenced operations. This sturdy building continues to serve the needs of our institution well.


  • The Blue Building:

    Constructed according to plans by architect Novák Istvánné, this new wing was added in 1989 and enabled the school to expand operations with a new library and six additional classrooms.


  • The „B” Building:

    Designed by Rédiné Bondor Klára and completed in the autumn of 2001, this new ediface became the latest addition to our school property. Situated on the corner of Szent György Street, this building has significantly enhanced the life and work of our educational community, and now provides space for a 106-bed dormitory, five classrooms, a full-sized gymnasium, an institutional kitchen, a cooking classroom, a doctor’s office and a large club room.


The institution is now well-equipped with a performance hall, an informatics classroom, two gyms, a multimedia language laboratory, an art/drawing room and a 20,000 volume library.
