The first grammar school in Brzeg (I Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Bolesława Chrobrego) was founded in a building erected in the years 1912-1914 according to the design of a Berlin architect Thaesler. The school (called Gymnasium then), whose first principal was Otto Umbreit, was opened on 1st October 1914. During World War I it was closed and the building housed a military hospital. Between the wars the German Gymnasium was transformed into high school (liceum wyzsze in Polish) in 1925 where the first school-leaving exam was held in 1929. After the Second World War it was re-established as a Polish grammar school on 1st September 1945. Mr Jozef Kaczkowski was nominated its first Polish headmaster responsible for organizing the school.
By June 1950 the school was managed by Ludmiła Danielewicz and Franciszek Głuszek. From 1972 to 1990 the headmaster's post was held by Danuta Wąsacz.
On 19th April 1972 the school was named after Boleslaw Chrobry, a Polish king in 11th century, and by a decree issued on 6th November 1972 it received its standard.
In the years 1990-2007 the school was managed by Leon Serkies and after his retirement in 2007 Małgorzata Dyminczuk has been the headmistress of the school up till now.humanities (Polish, history, foreign languages)
