Greek School Kimisis Tis Theotokou

Welcome to Greek School of Kimisis Tis Theotokou Holmdel!

Our approach to teaching is through activity-based learning and interactive lessons. Our native-speaking teachers bring many years of experience and passion to teaching our Greek language, history and culture. Our goal is for each student to reach their highest potential in the pursuit of Greek education. In order for our students to have maximum exposure to the Greek language, our teachers emphasize speaking only Greek in the classroom.

Στόχος μας είναι κάθε μαθητής να πετύχει το καλύτερο αποτέλεσμα στην εκμάθησης της Ελληνικής. Οι δασκάλες μας δίνουν έμφαση στη συνομιλία μέσα στην τάξη ώστε οι μαθητές να μάθουν κανόνες επικοινωνίας.
