One of our aims is to produce competent, self-motivated students who can function in an international environment and cope in English.
The general framework is determined by the National Board of Education with our school developing its own tailor-made curriculum within these parameters. We incorporate many subject areas into thematic units, which give children an opportunity to build on their own strengths and learning styles.
French, Swedish and German are offered as electives starting from grade 4. †Swedish instruction begins in grade 7 as a compulsory course. Our† selection of students for the school is based upon oral and/or written assessment in English. Our school accepts predominantly children living in Vantaa. Parental and professional support contributes to meeting our school's mission. These resources provide us with programs such as after school clubs.
Our school premises is located in Kartanonkoski. The building also includes a daycare†centre†and a public library.
