Gimnazija Banja Luka (Serbian Cyrillic: Гимназија Бања Лука) is a gymnasium in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Situated in the centre of the city, it was founded as the Velika Real, or Grand Royal school on October 4, 1895 by the Austro-Hungarian government, making it the oldest high school in the Republika Srpska entity.
The school, which has approximately 1300 students and more than 100 staff, offers national and international study programmes. Annual enrollment is about 300 students for the national programmes and 18-22 for the international.
The school teaches the national Matura programme and, as of 2006, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Like most high schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Matura programme takes 4 years (ages 15–19). Students choose among 4 different fields of curriculum focus: general, linguistics and social sciences, informatics, and mathematics.
