Our school’s operating culture promotes the students’ involvement and wide-ranging expertise. Innovation and sustainable development determine our school’s way of acting.

All schools in Finland follow a national curriculum, which includes the objectives and core contents of different subjects taught in school. The objective of Finnish basic education is to support pupils’ growth towards humanity and ethically responsible membership of society and to provide them with the knowledge and skills needed in life. If you wish to read More about Finnish school system and the national curriculum, please see
