1st Secondary School in Wodzisław Śląski was founded in 1948.  In 1960 it was named after the 14th Regiment of Silesian Insurgents. For many years the school was the only high school in the town, being an important element for the inhabitants in their educational pathway and opening the possibility of further education. Basing on this rich heritage we teach respect for tradition and culture, prepare for academic education and develop creativity and openness to the challenges of the world of work.  Our mission statement is: tradition, modernity and future.

Our school was granted a prestigious title of " The Silver School" given to the best high schools in the country.  Our graduates obtain higher graduation certificate results than the average school leavers of the Silesian Voivodeship and of the country.  Our students are successful in Olympiads and competitions. Those who are interested in the media can improve their skills in our state-of-the-art TV studio and auditorium with professional stage facilities. Students willing to help those in need can become permanent volunteers and work for the County Family Support Centre.
