The elementary school “Koco Racin” in Kumanovo was established in January 1945 under the name National Primary School “St. Clement of Ohrid”. Initially located in the building that currently houses the elementary school “Krste Misirkov”, it was later relocated to the premises of the high school “Goce Delchev” in the 1956/57 school year. In 1976/77, the school expanded its reach by incorporating regional four-year schools from the villages of Dobroshane and Biljanovce.
To further accommodate its growing student body, the school underwent another significant change in the 1983/84 school year. It relocated to a modern school building in the “Goce Delchev” settlement and adjusted its regional affiliation accordingly. The school continued to evolve, and in the 2004/05 academic year, it welcomed the eight-year elementary school “Cyril and Methodius” from the village of Orasac. The regional four-year schools from Skachkovce, Gabresh, Kuckarevo, and Gradiste also joined the school during this period.
As a result, the district that the school serves became the largest in the municipality. It is home to a predominantly younger population, as evidenced by the high number of students. Presently, the school boasts the second-largest student enrollment in Kumanovo municipality and consistently achieves outstanding academic scores. This success is attributed to the enthusiasm of the students, who are nurtured and inspired by the dedicated efforts of the best teachers in town.
