History edit

Evangelos Mandoulides, professor of Ancient and Modern Greek, founded Mandoulides Schools in 1978. The school started as a traditional K6 school. In 1991 Evangelos Mantoulides decided to expand the school by adding a new campus and providing education for grades 7 through 12. In 2002 the Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Senior High School opened their new premises. In 2009 the Day Care Centre admitted its first students.

Mandoulides Schools now include a Day Care Center, a Kindergarten, a Primary, a Junior and a Senior High School (Gymnasium and Lyceum). The schools are situated on two separate campuses just outside Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece.
