A brief note is made of the features and peculiarities of the school, which are considered important for the depiction of the school image

The Experimental Junior High School of Patras University, an integral part of the Experimental School of Patras University, has been constantly present in a positive way in the educational events in Patras since its establishment in 1972 until today.  The Experimental Junior High School of Patras University implements experimental and innovative teaching methods, has an intensely student-centred character and prioritizes love and care for the student as well as emphasizing creativity, imagination and innovation in the classroom.  Moreover, it has a clear European and international orientation and is characterized by the constant search and feedback for quality education, which is constantly improving with the use of new technologies.  It also focuses on the provision and consolidation of the democratic education of the students through the effective cooperation of the entire school community.
