1st Lyceum Of Rhodes - Venetokleion - Rhodes, Greece
The 1st Lyceum of Rhodes - «Venetokleio» (1o Geniko Lykeio Rhodou) is one of the oldest schools in the city of Rhodes. «Venetokleio», as the school is widely known, was founded by Venetoklis brothers, wealthy Rhodians of Egypt, in 1911. Our school uses a building of the Italian period and has this year 377 students, aged 15-18. The faculty consists of 40 teachers, the majority of which are highly experienced and qualified (post-graduate studies, foreign languages, ICT etc..)
Our school is a Senior High School, a Lyceum with three grades and six classes each. The curriculum includes general education courses (language, history, maths, physics, economics, english, gymnastics etc). Students of 2nd and 3rd grade attend also specialised courses on three domains (humanities, science/economy and computer science). School facilities are old but well-preserved (the building was constructed in the 1920s as an Italian military camp), including modern labs of computer science, physics, chemistry and technology. There is also an Event Hall, a school library and a historical library with old editions. However, the fact that the facilities are very old and not designed as a school, pose obstacles to school functions.
Our school prepares students for the National Exams for admission in Universities, with significant success (90%) and is proud for many of its graduates becoming distinguished scientists. The school also encourages participation in extracurricular activities aiming to the introduction of non formal educational methods and the intergrated development of our students’ personalities. Thus, teachers urge their students to participate in various activities, such as cultural activities (choir, orchestra, Cinema Club), sports events, voluntary social activities (aid for the refugees coming to our island, support to the «Social Market of Rhodes»), environmental and cultural activities (beach cleaning, tree planting, projects on endangered species, history and cultural heritage), participation in local or national competitions on Maths, Science, Ancient Greek and translation. Our school aims as well to be open to the local community and scientific associations and has already collaborated with the International Writers' and Translators' Centre, The Greek language Teachers’ Association, the Greek Mathematics Society, the Aegean University etc). We also support our students’ participation in «EUROSCOLA» and in funded European Programmes, such as Erasmus+.
