Riga First State Gymnasium

Headmaster: Maris Brasla

The school is proud of its 1035 students and 95 staff members. The school has its deep-rooted and much strengthened traditions and definite priority - deepened studies of mathematics, sciences, computers and foreign languages. Every year students participate in various regional, national and international subject Olympiads and scientific research conferences. Our students get high scores in centralised state examinations, thus last year again placing our school as number 1 in top high schools in Latvia. None of this success could be possible without hard creative work and commitment of the staff.

The gymnasium is recognized as the school of mathematicians. The school hosts state Olympiads and team competitions in mathematics; a successful cooperation with the Math distant learning school under the University of Latvia had been started.

High results are obtained also in sports and creative arts. Our pride is the school choirs "Kamer", "Sapnis" and "Jaunais Viru Koris" that have received prizes not only at local, but also international level.
