Basic Education Grades 1-9

Eastern Finland University Teacher Training School comprises two schools, namely Rantakylä Teacher Training School and Tulliportti Teacher Training School. Rantakylä Teacher Training School offers single-structure basic education for grades 1-9.  Tulliportti Teacher Training School operates in two different units, primary school grades 1-6 being located in Länsikatu and lower secondary grades 7-9 in Tulliportinkatu.

Cross cultural themes, international visitors and a versatile language programme create a rich cultural learning environment for our pupils. The teacher training programme together with experimental research bring variety and modern perspectives to teaching methods. Our school also offers a wide variety of optional courses, from Lego automation and drama to hunting and fishing.

Active participation in field trips, study visits and various events, for example in the annual international SciFest science event, are a vital aspect of our school. Our student board arranges events and various charities to improve the pupils’ sense of community. There is also a parents’ association, Nowa, which enhances cooperation between the school and parents.
