In Junior and Senior Highschool of Platon Schools:
We support students, so that they do not feel threatened for themselves and we give them the opportunity to face everyday situations and to direct their own learning.
We encourage student to express their feelings about the problems they encounter and to suggest solutions.
We develop activities based on the child's physical capacity for learning and the importance students attach to what they are learning.
We respond to the needs and interests of the student and the teachers themselves participate in the teaching practice as simple members of the group giving the opportunity for experimentation, self-action and discovery of knowledge.

During the school year our students have the opportunity to participate in innovative programs of various topics that offer new ways of differentiated learning. They are given the opportunity to create, collaborate, express themselves, raise awareness, have fun and expand their horizons with activities that transcend the boundaries of classical teaching.
