Tornio – Finland

IMG_20150818_175008 (FILEminimizer)Tornion yhteislyseon lukio is an upper secondary school. Our students are 16-19 years old. We have about 500 students and 30 teachers in our school.
The school is situated in Tornio, right on the Swedish border, 800 km to north from Helsinki, the capital. Its situation on the border has thus always given it an international atmosphere.
The instruction is carried out in a non-graded form and the curriculum is in a course-frame. The students have a chance of studying optional and specialized courses in addition to the common (obligatory) courses.IMG_20150819_093738 (FILEminimizer)
In a non-graded upper secondary school the student can himself/herself regulate the contents and duration of the personal study programme. Duration of the studies depends on the student’s goals, preparedness and own choices. The normal study time is three years. The non-graded form also contributes to added responsibility on the student’s part.
