    If that is the name of the school, use capitals.

    What is a Secondary School of Constructions?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I'm not sure we would use "Constructions" even though more than one subject can be studied there. I think it would be "Secondary School - Construction" or similar.

    We don't say "College of Musics" even though people can study theory, singing, all different musical instruments etc there. It's just a College of Music.
