International Private Schools in Athens: from Nursery to High School

Although Greece is not as international compared to other European countries, it is still a country which attracts a lot of expats for work. International families oftenly enroll their children in international schools as the prime language is English and the multinational environment makes the transition much easier.

We have created a list with all the International Schools in the region of Athens. Most of these schools are private, as none of them follow a Greek Education System.

All schools listed provide school buses to pick children up from home  and take them to school and back (an extra fee applies). These schools, as with other private schools in Greece, require students, mainly until the elementary school years, to wear the school’s uniforms.
