Summary/Abstract: The Saints Cyril and Methodius Bulgarian High School in Ottoman Salonica (contemporary Thessaloniki) was the foundation from which the education in the Bulgarian Exarchate in the Ottoman Empire drew strength. It offered pedagogical courses (1887 – 1896) and trade courses (from 1899 onwards), which developed into a trade department that span off as an independent trade high school in 1908. The teachers at the Salonica High School were undoubtedly the best staff of the Bulgarian education at the time, outstanding individuals, prominent in the social and political life, professing different ideas and finding it hard to obey authority. Over the 30 years of its existence the Salonica Boys’ High School experienced glorious moments and decline, riots and scandals, internal fights and transformations, but it remained the most well-known Bulgarian educational institution in Ottoman Macedonia.
