The school is fully adjusted to the needs of disabled students. There is a special drive, a toilet and
a cloakroom for teenagers in wheelchairs. The disabled teenagers are looked after by assistant teachers and their work is based on special schemes, prepared individually in accordance with their deficiency. Nowadays, there are 13 integrated classes and 9 typical ones. The school offers lots of extra-curriculum activities and the pupils can also belong to numerous clubs or organizations.

Some of them live in the city of Jaslo while the others come from the suburbs and nearby villages. The school provides free transport for commuters. Our schoolchildren come from various families and backgrounds. The basic differences regard parents’ education, jobs, employment and financial situation. Some of our students come from families with financial difficulties or are reared in numerous families. There are also students from families with alcohol dependency. Therefore our school provides the students with different kinds of aid and benefits, both financial and non-cash. Students take part in summer and winter school camps.

Almost all the students are Roman Catholic.
