Our Principles

Through experience and research, we have learned that the best approach to creating a successful Finnish school abroad is for Finnish education experts to empower and entrust local counterparts, creating a balanced collaboration to nurture a Finnish International School that is both purposeful and meaningful for students.

Our approach towards shaping an Empowered School is based on Four key principles.
