A short history
Vasvári Pál Secondary Technical School of Economics and IT is a member of the Szeged Center for Vocational Education and Training .
Our school is more than 100 years old, it was founded in 1904 as a state upper-level secondary school of commerce and trade. Teaching started with a student body of 150. In the following decades, the school went through several changes: a permanent fluctuation of the student body, multiple moves to different school buildings and its name was altered many times. The school moved to its present site, to 11 Gutenberg Street in 1968. In 1988 the school was renamed after Pál Vasvári, a young revolutionist and hero of the Hungarian Revolution and war of independence of 1848. The school building was extended in 2005 during a major renovation and reconstruction and it became one of the most modern educational facilities in Szeged.
