Senior elementary school

Senior elementary school [виділова школа; vydilova shkola]. The name given in Austrian-ruled Galicia to the three upper classes of the seven-grade elementary urban school established by the education law of 1863. The name applied also to the two upper grades of the five-year elementary schools for girls. Instruction in these schools was in Polish, and only two private girls' schools provided instruction in Ukrainian, the Basilian order of nuns' institute in Yavoriv (1897–1906) and the Shevchenko Elementary School for Girls in Lviv. Under Polish rule senior elementary schools were abolished in favor of a seven-grade public elementary school system, introduced in the 1932 education reform.
