Excellent students, successful university students, future scientists!

Pierce students from both C General Lyceum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) worked methodically with dedication, prepared appropriately, and saw their efforts rewarded. We wish our graduates well in their pursuit of acceptance to their top colleges that suit their interests, both in Greece and abroad.

We commend our graduates on their hard work and academic success. We commend their parents and teachers for giving our kids the best start possible during their six years of education, continuously assisting and directing them through this first significant challenge, assisting them in managing exam-related stress, and continuing the school’s long history of success!
