Polish prep school in late 1930s/early 40s

Hello all, first post here.

My character goes to a Catholic preparatory school in Poland around late 1930s and early 1940s. I'm wondering what the curriculum typically consisted of for a year twelve student, particularly in maths and science classes. So far I have her in Latin, French, English (composition, reading, recitation, etc), Bible, music, P.E., history, and geography, with sewing and swimming lessons once a week. 

Here are the (many) questions I have:
Assuming they have a greenhouse, would botany/horticulture be taught? Did they teach trigonometry, calculus, and geometry? Were there physics, biology, and physical science lessons? Astronomy? Were there chemistry labs? How in-depth and up-to-date were these science classes? 

I've googled these questions in different formats for a few hours and have only gotten the subjects that were taught, not what the specific teachings were. I also looked through the tags and found nothing. If any links to further reading could be provided, that would be great. Thanks!
