Paedagogiki Protoporia was established when two historic educational institutions,Ellinoagliki Agogi and Montessori Schools,each of which boasts a long and strong 50- year presence in the educational matters, in the field of private education,decided to join forces, with a view to realizing the vision for a complete educational community through setting up a secondary education institution.
Paedagogiki Protoporia is a Junior High School (to be complemented by our new Senior High School) which combines the natural beauty of the pine forest where it is located with our paedagogical vision regarding the school of the future.
Our school’s character is that of a warm,family-oriented educational institution which embraces its students in a context of close and harmonious cooperation with their families towards the common goal , with a focus on the particularities of early adolescence.
Our highly qualified teachers, with studies and educational backgrounds, which ensure a profound and precise knowledge of their specialties, apply a child -oriented educational approach, in which the student is the focal point.Through our experience , not only do we help our students gain knowledge but we also explore and detect their skills and talents, and, through a wide - ranging programme of extra-curricular activities, we promote the cultivation and development of these skills and talents,so that we produce adolescents with integral personalities,sound ideas and critical thinking along with a host of artistic and sporting achievements.
The old model of teacher - oriented education has definitely failed and, in the face of the increasingly pressing demands of our times, not only have we denounced it as a practice but we play a pioneering role in the field of education,having long rejected the counterproductive methods of memorization and simplistic recitation and following European educational standards.
Our main aim is the reinforcement and the development of a young man’s personality,which is ensured through instilling high moral standards, humanity, a love for life,sport and the arts,all combined with a well-rounded education.
