The school is situated 2 km away from the town of Rakitovo and is boys only. It is initially established in 1953 as “a school for morally endangered children”. During the years it was also called “Correctional school Maxim Gorky”. It is currently named after Angel Uzunov (1928 – 1999) who used to work in the school since its opening.
