The surface of the commune is 249, 24 km², occupying the third place on the county.
In the villages of Moldoviţa commune, located in the mountainous area of Bucovina Obcines, on the upper course of the Moldovita River, the education followed the same path as in the other villages of Bucovina. The villages are remembered for the first time by the documents drafted by Alexandru cel Bun’s chancellery at the beginning of the fifteenth century, when the sovereign of Moldavia gave these lands as a brandies to the monastery.
Why Vasile Cocea? Vasile Cocea was the second teacher in the locality with the longest teacher activity. During the period in which he worked as a teacher, the first building for Moldovan education was built, a building in which four primary classes are currently operating. Moldovan education was born on July 12, 1871, when the chairman of the school council of Câmpulung county – Iosif Kohanovschi – made a meeting with representatives of Moldoviţa commune and decided to set up a primary school as well as the means of maintenance and endowment of this school. He was named the first teacher at the Moldovita primary school, Ilie Albu. Courses were held in a private home with 20 enrolled children.
The School Council of Bucovina establishes in 1898 the second post of teacher, which is occupied by the contest of Ion Drobotă, and the director is named Vasile Cocea, during which the first school building was built, hence the name that the high school has today. In 1900, the school library was set up with a volume of 90 volumes. Increasing the number of pupils who were obliged to attend school, it is decided that a primary school was established in the village of Rasca in 1903, the teacher being called Andronic from Strişca (Cuciurul Mic), and in 1905 the school’s functioning school today. In Moldovita village a new brick building is built, with 4 classrooms and a residence for the director, inaugurated in 1903.
And in the village of Argel, in 1910, the primary school, with one post of Moldavian detached teacher, Eugen Mandric. Today the school operates with 5 primary school rooms, 4 gymnasium classes and 2 kindergarten classes.
In 1926-1927 the primary school in Demakusa village was established, and in 1934 a primary school was built in the village of Putna, which still functions with a kindergarten.
The kindergarten, the primary and secondary school in the Moldovita village were active in the two buildings built in 1903-1910 until 1962 when a new building for high school education was put into use so that in 1979 the Moldovan school could benefit from a building for gymnasium classes.
In 1990, all forms of education were reconfigured by a governmental order under the name of Moldovita School Group, which included preschool, primary, gymnasium, arts and crafts schools and high school in technology. As of September 1, 2004, the Moldovita School Group took the title of the “Vasile Cocea” Moldovita School Group and 8 years later it became the “Vasile Cocea” Moldovita Technological Highschool.
