Aristotelio College is a modern private educational institution and includes Nursery, Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior High School and Senior High School. It was founded in 1980, operating under the name of “Ekpaideftiria Grozoudi”, established in 1967 in Thessaloniki. The school has been family-owned and run since 1967. At present it operates in modern facilities within idyllic natural surroundings, in the areas of Pilea and Thermi, Thessaloniki. Our school has 180 students and 15 teachers in Gymnasium and 221 students and 23 teachers in Lyceum.
The school uses the most modern pedagogical methods and the full range of Information technology and pays special attention to the social development of the child, through several national and international projects. In this way promotes critical thinking and creative initiative to the students, as these are important for the future adult to succeed in life. Emotional intelligence, communicative skills, team-work, cooperative spirit and collaboration, ambition and motivation, are some of the skills and abilities that the school is trying to implant to our students.
Lately, bullying and violence phenomena have increased in frequency and intensity in almost every country of the developed world. Bullying takes the form of either quip or/and brutal violence on several occasions. Incidents are reported within the school context, in everyday routine or, in recent years, widely via the Internet. Those who undergo from bulling have a lasting sense of insecurity, undermining their personality and action at every level. They lose their self-confidence and a process of self-control begins that is particularly diminishing, as they consider that they are themselves responsible for their own deficiencies. Very often, they are absent from school as they experience rejection for whatever is related to the place where they face these painful experiences. The Erasmus+ program enhances the cultural consciousness and expression of students as well as their social and communication skills as citizens. This is advocated by Aristotelio College and therefore our school encourages educational programs that promote cooperative interactions. Thereby school environment can become an important factor that helps preventing and eliminating those undesirable facts.
