The present name Fra Grga Martca Gymasium, Mostar the school has carried since February 11, 1997.
Throughout all the years of its existence, this renowned Mostar School has not only changed its name but also the curriculum, depending on the school system. From 1974 to 1980 it was a general-education secondary school, and from 1980 to 1990 besides the general-program, the students following vocational educational programs such as chemical and library program, mining-geological and agricultural program were enrolled.
Since 1990 the general-education-program has been returned, to which the foreign language curriculum was soon added.
