When I joined L’Athenee De Beyrouth in the early 90s, the school consisted of two old buildings in Rabieh surrounded by forests. It was a cool place but a temporary one until we move to the new location in Bsalim. Unfortunately, the school’s owner died and we had to move to an unfinished school as construction works were put on hold.
Luckily though, a new management took over the school a year ago and finished in 15 months what has been pending for 15 years or more. I have fond memories of this school and I hope they will keep on improving it.
Congrats to the Athenee students and teachers and specially to the school’s principal Mr.Hayek who kept the school going through rough times and was loved and highly respected by all students.
There’s a committe being formed for “Les Anciens de l’athénée”; you can register for it on the school’s website [Here].
PS: I know this post may seem irrelevant to many readers, but anyone who’s been to Athenee can relate to what I am saying.
