Lviv Physics and Mathematics Lyceum (also known as LPML) is a public boarding high school in Lviv, Ukraine. It is usually considered to be one of the best educational institutions in the western part of the country. In 2012 and 2015 Lviv Physics and Mathematics Lyceum was ranked first among high schools in Ukraine by the Focus magazine.[1][2] The school is well known for organizing multiple country-wide competitions in mathematics, physics ("Levenia") and programming ("Bober"), including Ukrainian version of the international Mathematical Kangaroo contest.


Lviv Physics and Mathematics Lyceum offers two programs: Physics/Mathematics (grades 8 - 11) and Chemistry/Biology (grades 9 - 11). In the past a third concentration, combining mathematics and geography, was also available. This concentration is no longer offered due to insufficient enrolments.[3]

Students of the lyceum are frequently among the top participants at the National Olympiads. LPML students often represent Ukraine at various International Olympiads, including Physics (IPhO), Mathematics (IMO) and Chemistry (IChO).


Those who wish to study at the LPML have to pass an entry exam, with top performers offered admission. Students who previously won regional Olympiads are offered early admission without writing the entry exam. Average annual enrolment ranges from 110 to 130 students with around 30 students per class.

Student life[edit]

Residents from out of town are staying in gender-based dormitories. Nearly 25% of all LPML students reside in these dormitories.
