Extension and reconstruction of the historic school complex run by the Congregation of the Presentation Sisters. The building located  by one of the main streets of Rzeszow tightly fills a small plot of land, located between the existing development and the border of the road lane. Despite the modest size of the facility, it was possible to fit a large didactic area and solve the communication problems faced by the school.

The ground floor has been designed for gym, the floors for the classrooms and part of the chapel, and on the roof the terrace, performing in warm days function of the school yard.

Three parts of the school, created in different periods of time, are centered around a glass patio that extends over the entire height of the building and lets daylight into its interior.

The modern facade is covered with sandstone slabs, and the shape and proportions of the windows refer directly to the neighbouring historical object.
