The Partisan Grammar School in Zagreb, which changed its name into Marshal Tito Grammar School in 1946, was one of the forms of shortened schooling which came into existence in this period. It was open from September 1945 to September 1948. The students who entered this high school had had their schooling interrupted during the war because they were forced to go to prisoner or refugee camps or they joined the War of National Liberation. The students had an opportunity to make up for the years of schooling they had lost by finishing two grades in one school year. Besides Grammar School there was a Partisan dormitory, where one part of the students from this school was situated, and one part was situated in other dormitories or at private accommodation. The teachers in this school were mainly soldiers, officers in National Liberation committees and associates or supporters of the National Liberation Movement. On average, 35 to 40 of them were employed in a school year. Although they didn’t have any books, reference books or teaching aids, they tried to help the students to overcome the subject matter better and easier. In classes the attempt was to work according to the newest methods and principles. There were ceremonials in the school which were held to mark the beginning or the end of a school year and different anniversaries. Companies, different institutes and other Zagreb schools used to send books, school supplies and money to help the students of the Grammar School. During its existence, many prominent visitors came to the Grammar School. According to political hierarchy, Josip Broz Tito was the most important visitor, and after his visit the school was given permission to carry his name. After 1948 most of the soldiers had probably made up for the lost years of schooling, so there was no need for the Grammar School to exist any more. The school building was taken over by the Ministry of War and Navy in the same year and a military college was opened on its premises.
