This school was founded in 1937, between the Near East Gym and the Shooting Gallery, and was named "Experimental School for Abnormal and Retarded Children". The foundation and function of this school was due to the great Greek pedagogue, Rosa Imvrioti (1898-1977). Rosa Imvrioti had had excellent education, apart from the Philosophical School in Athens, in Paris and Berlin had been an activist socialist enemy to the established order of Metaxas. In order to fulfil her vision and aid the mentally deficient children, she used the German psychologist Sprander, from whom Metaxas himself had taken a few courses, while studying in the War Academy, in Berlin, to badger the dictator. Finally, despite his being a declared enemy of Imvrioti, due to belief, Metaxas gave in and the school was built.
