GREECE 2nd Lyceum of Rodos KAZOULLEIO

  • The 2nd Lyceum of Rhodes - "Kazoullio" is a public school situated in the center of the city of Rhodes. It is one of the oldest and most important schools of the Dodecanese. The school is housed in a neoclassical building that was built in 1909 thanks to the generous donation of two great Rhodian benefactors: the Kazoullis and the Venetokleis. Although the building is old, most classrooms are equipped with projectors and computers, thus facilitating the teaching procedure. At school there are 330 students aged between 15 and 18 and 30 teachers of all specialties. Students are taught a wide variety of subjects including English, German, Informatics and Arts. A large percentage of our students (85%) continue their studies in tertiary education.

    The main goals of our school are tο improve our students' school performance, to provide them with all the necessary skills in order to become responsible citizens and create a friendly, pedagogical climate in our school. In order to achieve these goals, it is necessary for the school to open up and become more extrovert but also to gain valuable experience through our participation in European programs.

    In recent years, the school has participated in many volunteering projects. One such project was the participation of our school in a nationwide recycling program, taking fourth place. Additionally, our school has been participating in the “Rhodes For Life” annual event, which raises money for the purchase of medical equipment for cancer patients. This equipment is then donated to the local hospital. Our social activity is intense as well, aiming at helping our fellow citizens in need. We also participate in environmental projects, projects organised by the Greek Red Cross and EFTHYTA (a non-profit, non-governmental organization concerned with road safety). Part of our participation in all these projects is presented on the school website.

    Due to the proximity of our school with the Old Town of Rhodes, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the fact that Rhodes was among the candidate cities for the institution of the European Capital of Culture, we believe that any projects relevant to the civilization, the culture and cross-cultural nature of Europe are of interest to our school. We feel that the participation of our students in such projects will help them deepen and cultivate European values. We consider such values of paramount importance due to the difficulties Europe has been going through recently.
