Seven-Year Industrial Training School

 

(FZS), a type of general-educational school that functioned in cities, workers’ settlements, and industrial regions in the USSR from 1926 through 1934. It provided pupils with a general education and also acquainted them with work procedures in industry. Pupils who graduated from an FZS could enroll in the eighth grade of a secondary school or in a vocational secondary school. In May 1934 primary, incomplete secondary (seven-year), and secondary general-educational schools were established, and the FZS’s became incomplete secondary schools.
