I. BUILDING DATA
The building was built between 1909 – 1911 by a joint investment of the State, County, and Roman-Catholic Bishopric (one investor for each of the three bodies of the building).
Until the nationalization it harbored the Roman-Catholic High-School, and then as the most important general high school of the county. It was restituted in 2003 to the church.
Since then, due to the agreement signed between the owner and the City Hall there are two institutions operating here: The High School Marton Aron (state-owned) and the High School Segito Maria (the Roman-Catholic High-School).
Both institutions have all facilities needed (class-rooms, labs, management), but they share the sports hall and the festivity hall (which serves as chapel at the same time). At present, 1150 students are taught here.
As a result of the agreement between the City Hall and the Church the rehabilitation project of the entire building was approved, obtaining European funding.
The works were carried out between 2010-2013.
