Tampere Arts-Oriented Senior Secondary School
Tampere Arts-Oriented Senior Secondary School is an independent school established in 1895. Thousands of senior secondary students have been educated in our school ever since. In 1991 it was nominated as an arts-oriented senior secondary school by the Finnish Ministry of Education. There are only two such schools in Finland.
Tampere Arts-Oriented Senior Secondary School is a highly esteemed and valued institution ready to meet the requirements of a constantly changing society. The school provides a broadly-based education designed to enable all students to discover their strengths, to make the most of their talents at school and beyond, and to appreciate and increase human culture. We are also committed to creating respect for individuality and human diversity.
Our school provides a dynamic learning environment in which all the students are encouraged to participate in both lessons and all other facets of the school.
The school has a relaxed and motivated atmosphere rich in creativity and individuality. The teaching staff is proficient with a good sense of humour. Some can even be characterized as "original".
We hope our students will become responsible, caring and critical individuals with a thirst for knowledge, citizens with a strong understanding of other cultures, people who will be able to cooperate with other people in our own country and abroad.
