In 1919 some bright young people built a stage in the one of the largest classrooms where theatrical performances were shown by them and with the participation of teachers. This gave rise to amateur theater in the city of Burgas.
In 1926 the school building was renovated. So on 15th September 1938 the classes began in the new school building and on 8th December the same year was officially given the name of the school - the name of the first medieval Bulgarian saint, scholar, writer, teacher and enlightener Saint Clement of Ohrid – „St. Kliment Ohridski”.
