The BORG Linz is a federal upper level secondary school in Linz . It has nine different branches, eight of which are located at the headquarters in Linz. The BORG branch with communication exists in Hagenberg in the Mühlkreis, about 25 km away . With over 1000 students in currently 45 classes, it is considered the largest upper secondary school in Austria.


The school building was built from 1874 to 1876 as a teacher training institute according to the plans of the architect Karl Stattler from the Upper Austrian construction company . The free-standing, elongated building with a U-shaped floor plan was built in the style of historicism. The main wing is three-storey with a basement and has a broad central section with an attic crown. There are two similarly designed foyers with groined vaults. The two monumental staircases are designed in opposite directions with arcades, pilasters and balustrades. In 1974, with the conversion to the upper level secondary school, the two wing buildings were raised and supplemented with modern extensions.


At present around 1000 pupils are taught in 44 classes by around 140 teachers. The BORG Linz has various branches of training:

The BORG goes back to the normal school in Linz, which was established in 1775, which in the following decades developed more and more into a teacher training institute with an attached practice school. In the 1870s, for example, there was a preparatory class for four classes each for the training of teachers and a five-class practice school. After the First World War , other branches of education and specializations such as B. kindergarten teachers and technical teachers .

In 1963/64 today's BORG was converted into a music-pedagogical secondary school, the current name has existed since 1975. The broadening of the educational offerings through the establishment of various branches of training took place gradually between 1989 and 2003.
