Geniko Lykeio Alikianou is a public school providing general education to students 14-18 years old. These studies are not compulsory in Greece and last for 3 years. Students prepare for the final national examination to enter higher education. The school is located in Alikianos, a small village 12 Km south of Chania in Crete. It is a provincial, small school with 125 students and 21 teachers. The school was founded in 1976, has 7 classrooms, a science and computer lab. Students live in rural mountain and foothill areas, with a lot of difficulties concerning communication with cultural and economical centers. Most of the families have difficulties in appreciating the knowledge that students receive from such a school. The economical crisis in Greece has affected education adversely. The above mentioned factors have contributed to students dropping out school early at a rate of 30%. School implements a variety of optional activities in order to become more attractive. Teachers try to emphasize on the meaning of informal and non-formal education, empower the personal relationship between all the members of the school community and give everyone the suitable motivation needed to participate in an active, pleasant and creative education. Migrant students (from Albania, Bulgaria and Romania) as well as refugees or asylum seeker students who are expected in the following years are supported by any means to participate in such projects. The school develops strategic partnerships sharing practices taking into account all EU horizontal education priorities. It builds networks to adopt new ideas, practices and exchanges innovative educational methods.
