International Classes

The International Classes are for students aged 13–16 studying in grades 7-9. The International Classes form a small, yet significant section in our bigger Finnish-speaking school. As well as being well-integrated with the rest of the school, the classes form a close unit where mutual understanding and support among the students have always been the tradition. In this atmosphere students grow into responsible, independent and motivated individuals who can set firm goals for their future life and academic career.

Who can attend the International Classes?

  • Students between 13-16 years of age in grades 7-9.
  • Children of Finnish or other nationality who have received their elementary education in English - in Finland or abroad.

Admittance to school

Upon entry to the school the student has to pass an English test if her/his competence of English cannot be otherwise proven. The general testing takes place in January, but students can also be tested and admitted to the school throughout the year when moving into the country.

Free of Charge

There is no charge for tuition or study materials. Students are given a hot lunch every day, with consideration to special diets. The school offers the students free health care services and dental care. Study guidance, psychologist and councellor services are also available for our students.


Parents receive information on matters concerning their child’s education through an Internet portal Wilma ( At the start of the school year, the students’ guardians receive their own student-specific user ID for Wilma.

International Contacts

Our school has several partner schools in different European countries. Many Comenius projects have taken place over the years and students have participated in various exchange programs.
