Two new state high schools to open in Narva in 2021 ({{commentsTotal}})

According to an Agreement of Intent signed Minister of Education and Research Jürgen Ligi and Narva mayor Tarmo Tammiste, two new state high schools are scheduled to begin operation in Narva no later than 2021.

According to the plan, one Estonian-language high school and one high school meant for the graduates of Russian-language basic schools will be built in Estonia’s northeastern border city, reported ERR’s television news.

Narva’s currently operating high schools will be converted to basic schools, with the exception of the Narva Language Lyceum, or the former Narva High School of Humanities, which ranks in Estonia’s top ten best schools as based on state examination results. The latter will remain operational as a “full-cycle” school combining the basic and high school levels.
