The complex (the lyceum and the gymnasium put-together) has a number of 630 students approximately.The school gets 3/4 of its students from graduates of the gymnasium,and the other 1/4 is drawn before the beginning of the school year. The students are usually successful in the nationwide university entry exams because the school is the only public school in Greece, in which the Ministry of National Education chooses the teachers in order to meet special standards. Most of the teachers have a doctorate in their subject.
