This school was founded in 1866, but its present facility wasn't built until 1897-98.
The architecture and decoration of the building - including the facade mosaics by Salviati - is an almost replica of the Roman Voda Lyceum (Colegiul National Roman Voda) in the city of Roman and the Unirea Lyceum in Focsani (Colegiul National Unirea).
