ENGLANTILAINEN KOULU in Helsinki (Finland)

The English School (www.eschool.edu.hel.fi) was founded in 1945 right after the wars. It is the first bilingual school in Finland where instruction is in both English and Finnish. The English School comprises a two-year preschool, elementary, middle and high school. The staff consists of both native English speaking staff and Finnish speaking staff. Besides languages, the school values Christian values in its education. The students come from all faiths and non-faith.

The English School is the first bilingual school in Finland. We have long traditions in teaching through the medium of two languages, which are the key areas in the planned activities between the schools. The organization of school work in a bilingual school differs from ordinary Finnish school: every class is taught mainly by a team of two teachers: the other one is a native Finnish speaker the other one a native English speaker. The benefits of team-work will also be on focus in our collaboration.
