The school has classes specialized in intensive sport and English bilingual programmes.

Sports have always been important in the life of the school. The special P.E programme started in 1973. Our students have achieved excellent results especially on the field of athletics, basketball and football. After leaving our school they become competitors of national teams.

In 1992 our school started a bilingual program which consists of the following curriculum:
primary English, basics of History and Environmental Studies, continuing with Biology and Geography, Art and Music.

Every year a study group travels to England to practise their language skills and to enhance their knowledge of the country. We would not only like our students to acquire an excellent use of the language within the 8 years, but also to be exposed to a broader worldview type of instruction which will assist them in assimilating European thinking.
