Basic Education Grades 1-9

Normaalikoulu is a university school that offers basic education in two buildings, the Primary School for grades 1-6 located in Länsikatu and the Lower Secondary School for 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 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.
