The school of second chance is an institution across Greece, that gives adults a second chance to complete the compulsory education they missed as teenagers. As in all of Greece, the school in Mytilene provides basic skills that adults need to cope with when they work, need public services, have lack of social skills. The courses offered aim to enhance the skills of adults in the Greek language, English language, maths, science, environmental studies, computer literacy, art and their social skills. Students who enroll to this particular school are not only Greeks, but many migrants as well, provided that they have basic knowledge of the Greek Language, so that they can attend the courses. Students attend afternoon classes for two years and get a degree that is equivalent to a Greek High School degree. The syllabus is flexible and adapted to the needs of the students. People from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Morocco, Albania, Georgia, Romania and Bulgaria have also joined the school during the last years, giving it a new multicultural dynamic.
