The Curriculum at the Primary School “PEDAGOGIKI” is expanded, due to the appropriate planning and the extended seven-hour schedule. The curriculum includes multiple innovations, always aiming at the complete understanding of the lessons taught each day, by the students upon leaving classroom.
The school pays particular attention not only to the teaching of linguistic lessons, but also to the cultivation of logical/mathematical thinking, providing them not only with the textbooks distributed by the Ministry of Education but also with additional educational material (see also section: Educational Material - School Publications).
In this line of thinking, the students are able, depending on the class they are visiting, to adequately practice and outweigh their needs in both of these fields. Nevertheless, it is common knowledge that students of our school have always been distinguished in several Hellenic and European student contests and exams, upon the establishment of this educational faculty (such as Hellenic Mathematical Society, Avid Reading and Literature, entrance exams to Pioneering Schools etc.).
In the last couple of classes of Primary School students have the chance to become aware of details from the history of Greek Language and be better prepared for the lessons of Ancient Greek, and Elements of Rhetoric and Literature Theory, taught in High School, joining a corporate training system, that allows for their better preparation to enter the next educational level.
The curriculum of “PEDAGOGIKI” Primary School regarding Foreign Languages is developed by the professors in charge in field of English and French language respectively. All teachers have attained a high academic standard.
Field of English Studies
Private school teaching level from A Grade. In addition students of D Class of our Primary School have the ability to acquire language certifications - Cambridge University Diplomas through British Council. In particular:

Within the framework of cultivation of English language the students come in touch with the elements of British and American culture through various educational activities (avid reading programs, English nights, theater performances, trips abroad etc.). Due to the particularly thorough work at school, students don’t need any additional help from intensive or private lessons.

In “PEDAGOGIKI” the teaching of French language starts from Α Grade. D Class provides essential enhancement, in order for all the students to successfully pass the exams for A1 Section of DELF upon graduation from the ΣΤ Class of Primary School, without additional lessons after school. Apart from the private level teaching, we also provide a more essential approach of French language, through French culture. In this context, students come in touch with several avid reading programs, French Theater, cinema, gastronomy etc. The school’s curriculum is developed by the school’s professor in charge for French Studies in cooperation with the respective professor in charge for French Studies at Saint Paul Greek French School of Piraeus and according to the requirements of the French Institute of Athens (IFA), with which we also maintain cooperation. “PEDAGOGIKI” Primary School serves as a test center of the French Institute of Athens (Ι.F.A.) for Certification and Diplomas on Language Competence, with which we also maintain cooperation on various educational programs (see also Associations/French Institute of Greece).
Supplementary Teaching is provided through the basic curriculum of the school, without additional charge, to all the students from the 1st to the 6th Grade, so that the students can delve deeply into the lessons upon leaving school at the end of date, solving every question in classroom and regular substantial revisions of the lessons taught by the teachers.
