What makes the Finnish education system so good?

Finland has a reputation as an education powerhouse, with its long track record at the top of the world rankings, and proven results. The strength of the Finnish school system is that it guarantees equal learning opportunities, regardless of social background. Instead of comparison between pupils, the focus is on supporting and guiding the weaker pupils.

The curriculum utilizes the Finnish National Core Curriculum. We offer unique high-quality education based on modern pedagogical approaches and methodologies having its roots in the long-term educational development of the Finnish education system.

In the Finnish approach, learning is fun and the children are not prepared for tests but for life.

Even though our educators can provide answers and solutions, they strongly encourage the self-development of the child through seeking understanding, questioning, experiencing, reflecting, discovering, and meaning making.

The nature of a child is to want to know new things, to be inquisitive, curious about the world around them, and to experiment with what they learn. Finland’s education system builds on this, taking advantage of the natural curiosity and placing it at the heart of education planning and curricula.

Students take initiative in planning, directing, and evaluating their own learning process, collaborating with their peers, solving problems and steering projects through teamwork. At FIS, although students receive progress evaluations, scaled grading is not introduced until the 8th year.

We Are Not Interested In Scores

Preparing students to learn how to learn, not how to take a test

It’s not what education is about.
