Παρουσίαση σχολείου - School Presentation (2nd ed.)
53rd High School of
Good Morning everybody. Let’s introduce ourselves:
We are the teachers of the 53rd High School of Athens, Greece, in the
southeast corner of our common home, Europe.
Our school is located in an old neighborhood of the historic city of Athens,
worldwide known for being the land of Philosophy, Poetry and Good Arts.
The neighborhood is called Sepolia and is located in the northwest of the
municipality of Athens about 10 minutes from the Acropolis using the
The Acropolis of Athens, cradle of the Western Civilization
Sepolia is unfortunately one of the most depressed neighborhoods of the city,
characterized from very high unemployment rates, families of a low standard
of living and really poor public facilities. Nevertheless it is one of the few places
in Athens that you can still feel what is like to live in a community where the
people care for each other and try to make their lives easier in difficult times
helping the ones in more need.
A view of the Sepolia neighborhood
As far as our school is concerned, someone could say that it is a relatively
typical secondary education school in terms of the building, the number of
students that attend the lessons and the number of teachers that work there.

The building of the school is 35 years old, which is an average age for a
secondary school in our city. It is definitely though the oldest secondary
school in the region of Sepolia.

It is a two floor – two wings building with a large courtyard in a typical
architecture for a civil school. It is equipped with two labs set up for
Physics/Chemistry and two labs for Computer’s lessons. It has also a small
auditorium which is used during the school festivals.

What is more, we have
made some specific
arrangements over the last
2 years and secured that our
school has now it own
Library, its own classrooms
for teaching using modern
methods like Cooperative
Learning, a special
classroom for teaching
History using object lessons
(computer and maps) and a
similar classroom for
Biology lessons using
microscopes and other

Given the more than
enough size of the
building we saved two
classrooms in the ground
level for students with

Taking chance from the Erasmus+ Program we have adjusted a class to the
needs of this Program where our students can work in teams or in person
upon the subjects of concern, using computers that were donated to the
school especially for the needs of the Educational Programs.

arranged classroom for Cooperative Learning
Putting aside the facility, lets talk about people: our students and our colleagues. Every year
approximately 300 students in total attend the lessons of the three classes of our High
School. They all come from the neighborhood by the school which is densely inhabited, as
are most of the neighborhoods in the municipality of Athens.

European fellow students.
It is fare to say that they very much like taking part in special educational
activities such as this Program and other training courses like Environmental
Education, even if it means that they should stay further hours at school in
order to earn more knowledge and more skills.
Our students obviously enjoy the Educational Programs
The 25 teachers of all areas of expertise are more or less the same the last three
years with minor changes, headed by our Principal Mr. Vassilatos. Even though
most of us do not live in Sepolia, we all regard the school and this neighborhood
as our home and give our best for the benefit of our students and their families.
Celebrating in school’s auditorium the Greek National Day of 25th of March
We will be happy to welcome your students and some of you soon in the
historic city of the mighty goddess Athena and make you feel at home
honoring the authentic Greek custom of hospitality!
