Our school is a senior high school located in Nea Smyrni, an area of ATHENS, not very far from the Acropolis and the historical center of the city, as well as, within 10 minutes’ drive south to the ATHENS RIVIERA.
It is named after our ancient epic poet HOMER and was originally located in SMYRNI, Asia Minor but after the catastrophe of the area in 1922 and the persecution of the Greeks from their homelands, the refugees came to the area and formed NEA SMYRNI
250 students consist our school community, along with about 20 teachers of various disciplines.
Actually, in the school premises coexist a second Senior High School (3rd Likio) and 2 Junior High Schools(GYMNASIA)
The first 3 forms consist the GYMNASIO, junior high school, and the last three forms consist the LIKIO, senior high school with separate heads.
