Welcome to Socrates Hellenic Greek School - Wisdom begins in wonder.
About Socrates Hellenic School
Socrates Hellenic School has over 30 years of history providing children's Greek education in Mississauga and district (Halton and Peel). Organized and run by our parents and guardians, our mission is to provide the children with the best possible learning environment while continually trying to find ways to improve our children's knowledge of our Hellenic heritage. Some areas of study include: Greek Language, History, Religion, Geography, and traditional Hellenic dances.
Brief History
The parent and guardian operated Socrates Hellenic School of Mississauga and District was established in its present form in 1991. Before then, very few local Greek schools were available for our children. The schools that did exist were mainly private, being run under other organizations such as churches or associations looking to make a profit. This created enough dissatisfaction from our children's parents and guardians to start looking for solutions to a better education and learning environment for our students. After holding several meetings involving parents from the local area Greek schools, it was decided to find a new school that could accommodate the entire district. Thus, Socrates Hellenic was born in central Mississauga.
The newly formed organization now belongs to the parents and guardians of the students and run by a committee made up of parents and guardians who are elected every two years by its members.
