The motto of our work is:
The right attitude is the key to success

Our school gives basic education for 7th, 8th and 9th grade. The national core curriculum for basic education was renewed in 2014, and the new curriculum has been implemented in schools from August 2016. In lower secondary schools the reform has taken place gradually in three years (2017 – 2019). So this year all the grades study according the new curriculum. (More information www.oph.fi/english/ )

In our school one group in every grade is specialized in music. The music groups have more music education than the other groups. They give concerts and have many performances during the school year. In 2009 we also started teaching through CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning). These groups are taught partly in English in some subjects.

School Year
The school year consisting of 38 weeks is divided into four periods of nine or ten weeks. The education is concentrated on five to seven subjects during each period. Some subjects are studied throughout the school year, e.g. Sports, crafts, home economics, maths and Finnish and literature. All the pupils have on the average 30 lessons per week.

Student Council
The student council consists of a government (15 members) and about 20 tutors who are in charge of the student activities.

The tutors’ most important task is to help and guide the new pupils in the 7th grade. They also arrange discos and meetings. The government represents the pupils and takes care of their rights.

After the schooldays there are different clubs available. The clubs are run by our teachers and cooperation partners outside the school.
