'Školu jsem ukončil úspěšně' should be accepted, shouldn't it? ('my answer should be accepted'-report is disabled here)

Is there a reason why "skončil jsem školu ušpěšně" is not accepted?

You have two typos in 'ušpěšně': It starts with ' ú-s-pěšně... '

I'd just point out that "I have finished THE school successfully" is odd in English.

I could imagine it if, say, you were painting the school building and you finished painting it the way it should have been done. But a native speaker, at least in the US, would almost certainly say, "I have finished school successfully," when speaking about graduating or ending the school year successfully

I described the problem in the discussion of the "reverse" exercise a while back, but there was no Report button for a problem with the English sentence. I noticed there WAS a Report button in this direction, but clicked "Continue" too fast...

"Jsem ukončil školu úspěšně". What is the difference between ukončil, skončil, dokončil?

There is only a subtle difference. I wouldn't worry now.

But your sentence does not follow the second position rule for "jsem".
