Every city is a sphere in which schools competing for potential students are situated. The aim of this article is to specify which factors determine decisions concerning city inhabitants' school choices. During the analysis of collected empirical material, the authoress intends to verify the hypothesis claiming that the area in a city where the school is situated has less and less influence on young people's educational choices. It appears that, on making such decisions, youngsters tend to consider a particular school's reputation and position, not the distance between the school and their place of living. Due to this fact, schools are becoming institutions which can potentially generate spatial movement among citizens. If it appears that a particular school is 'better' than others, more and more people are willing to become regular commuters. The authoress found one problem particularly interesting, namely, whether schools have become places assembling students of a similar social position and status. It can be observed that students whose parents have higher education and jobs of high social recognition more often attend 'better' schools.
