I like that the teachers care about their students and are willing to help us with anything that we need independently if we walk up to them and ask. We are extremely prepared for exams and we have a very rigorous curriculum. However, the school right now doesn't have any clubs, reducing our chances of standing out for outside activities and school spirit is very minimal. By that, I mean that it is there, but the faculty doesn't care about it as much as their do for academics and this is a big part of a high school experience. Overall, the school is pretty good and I will continue going here, as long as, it is beneficial for me.

I'm an alumni from Archimedean upper conservatory but I've also attended the academy as well as the middle conservatory. I love that I've been in this school my whole life because not many people can say that. By graduation time, it felt like I was leaving my family less than just leaving a school. It's a small school so you get the individual attention you need as a student and it made me love the Greek culture as I do my own!
Archimedean Upper Conservatory is a niche school. It's greek curriculum (which include both the study of Greek Language and Greek Mathematics) makes an attractive offer to parents. While you do feel a sense of community after many years, it's only because most students leave by sophomore year because they're either risking the chance of going to college (as they can't raise their GPA), or just going to a more attractive and less draining schools. The school does succeed in bringing their student's to their dream college, but only if the student is willing to put in the work.
