In 2024, the Jean Jaurès middle school will be 450 years old. This college, from which many local figures such as Pierre Fabre, Jacques Limouzy, Jacqueline Salvan and the explorer Jean-Louis Etienne come, is one of the oldest secondary education establishments in France.

The establishment was founded in 1574, when the Protestants took control of the city. From 1633 to 1664, it became a half-party college “half of the students and teachers were Protestant, the other Catholic” specifies Alain Lévy, president of the Association of former students of the Jean Jaurès high school.

In 1924, the high school took the name of Jean Jaurès

Between 1664 and 1762, the Jesuits obtained full possession and use of the college, which became a royal college between 1763 and 1792. In 1840, under public pressure, and at the instigation of mayor Louis Mahuziès, the city bought the premises for create a municipal college there serving as a high school, before officially taking the title in 1960.

It was in 1924 that the high school took the name of Jean Jaurès, the most brilliant student who studied there from 1868 to 1875. Finally, between 1920 and 1960, certain final classes were already mixed (girls and boys), before that the Borde Basse high school was founded in 1973.
