High School

Unique Bilingual Program

Instruction is offered in English and in Finnish (see the Program of Studies). Our unique bilingual program helps students to graduate truly fluent in both languages. The courses taught in Finnish provide the necessary terminology in Finnish to complete the matriculation examinations successfully.

If a student's official mother tongue is not Finnish or Swedish, we offer an excellent Finnish as a second language program.

International Examinations

In addition to the Finnish matriculation examination and after taking the preparatory mathematics and English courses offered by the school, students may sit the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT), which prepares them for the SAT. The first Cambridge A Level exams were taken in 2014.

Solid Academic Level

Our teachers are dedicated, and they ensure a solid academic level at our school. Most of our students advance to well-known universities in Finland and abroad.

We provide personalized assistance in seeking education abroad after high school.

Pedagogic Continuity

The pedagogic continuity in most subjects helps the teacher to perceive and develop each student's talents. Close interaction between the teachers and students make it easy to contact the teachers and have fruitful discussions with them.

Flexibility in Course Requirements

At our school, it is possible to concentrate on the subjects that are important to each student: compulsory courses in other subjects may be dropped, with the exception of Finnish and English.

Good Guidance

The guidance counsellor takes time to meet each student individually. The counsellor, the group advisor, and also subject teachers are dedicated to support the progress of studies of each student.

Art and Music Diplomas

At our school the number of music courses is considerably higher than required in the Finnish curriculum. In the visual arts we also offer an additional applied course. Students that are particularly gifted and dedicated may also complete the Music Diploma as well as the Visual Arts Diploma.
