The beginning of 20th century was a time of rapid development for the city of Gliwice. A growing number of inhabitants created a need for establishing a new educational institution that would admit students from other school in Gliwice which experienced and excessive number of pupils. The construction work began on 11 August 1913 and was based on the project of Wilhelm Kranz. However, the works had to be suspended due to flooding of Kłodnica river. In fact, great efforts made to protect the foundations of the building allowed it to be finished in 1915 as previously planned. The total cost amounted to 400 000 marks (about $290 000). After the Second World War, in 1949 755 students commenced there their education in the primary and high school, and since 1976 I Liceum Ogólnokształcące was founded on 1 September 1949 and along with a primary school provided education for 755 students. Since 1976 I LO functioned individually until 2001 when the authorities of Gliwice decided to connect it with Gimnazjum nr 14, which now together form ZSO nr 10.
