British (definitely not international)

Nursery-Year 13

The school is very far, out of the way, for students not living in voula or glyfada, and their bus option is overpriced and unorganized.

There is an ESL program, but other than that they are very unhelpful with the whole process.

Look elsewhere, the school is great for younger children and convenient if you live in the area, till 8th grade, but after that, I would reccomend some of the other IS in the area.
