Although I was told by a respected educationalist that private schools were a wasre of money for under 11s I think it's far too complex and too important for answers based on the info you'very given.

How old are the children?
How well do they speak Greek?
What's their native language?
How well do they speak other languages?
How long are you/they planning to stay here for?

There are probably even more things to be considered if you want relevant suggestions....

My son is native English and is fluent Greek speaking as he has been here since nearly two years old now eight. He picked up the Greek very quickly but is behind with his English as he was not taught enough obviously being in a Cypriot school. I have now enrolled him at Xenion private primary school in Paralimni as this is the first opportunity to do so here in this region , so now he is learning reading and writing both languages and i am very pleased with the way the school is being run. Depending on what you want for your childrens education and your circumstances i would recommend this is the best way forward for their future. This is only my opinion with no prejudice.

We came here when my son was a year old and he is fluent in both Greek and English. He goes to the 'A' Greek primary school in Paralimni but we pay for private English lessons at Xenion so that his reading/writing and grammar keep pace.

I have to say I am really pleased with the primary education but will probably send him to Xenion for highschool in 3 years time.
