We strive to make children confident and creative builders of their future, through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum. Fun, creativity, engagement, independent learning, curiosity, critical thinking and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do.

Our pupils are encouraged to meet academic challenges with openness, enthusiasm, and a willingness to solve problems in an atmosphere of cooperation, care, trust and respect.

Studies have shown that bilingual children and children that have the opportunity to become bilingual are more creative and better at planning and solving complex problems, compared to monolingual children.

School subjects are taught both in the Greek and English language via the CLIL (Content & Language Integrated Learning), without requiring extra teaching hours.

The first school in Athens that combines the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, with the prestigious International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), which aims to prepare students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

The IB Programme is committed to inquiry-based learning and at the center of the curriculum are five essential elements: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action.

Our methodology
Personalized Learning
Teaching is based on the types of intelligence and each child’s temperament
Differentiated Learning
Every student makes optimum use of their individualities and talents.
Blended Learning
The combination of traditional teaching with online learning.
Flipped Classroom
Experiential introduction to the teaching unit.

Thank you for toilet training me, for eating beans with me for the very first time, for making friends with me, for teaching me how to take my jacket off on my own! Thank you for everything, big and small. Thank you for growing up with me!

A hug and a sweet kiss, at DES every morning. Thank you DES for being in our lives. We will always love you. You are our first choice!
Mariana Naka
Your work is reflected in our children’s smiles!
Spernovasili Family
If inspiration and creativity were painted on the face of young happy children, this would surely refer to the children of DES. If all "young children’s" schools had this brilliance, taste, stimuli offered by DES, our world would be a better place!!! With infinite love for the DES team.
