Finland International School Pune, India (FIS Pune) is owned and operated by Goenka Global Education, an enterprise committed to offering holistic and transformative education through innovation and experiential learning environments. The first of its kind in India, the school opened its doors in August 2022 with the Finnish National Core Curriculum in the heart of the operations. The school follows the pedagogical approach and the best practices from Finland merged with local requirements.
The principal, Mr. Nikke Keskinen, as well as 2/3 of the teaching staff are from Finland. They work closely together with the local educators co-teaching, mentoring, and learning from each other. During the second academic year 23-24, FIS Pune caters to children from nursery to grade 6. The school will gradually expand to a full K-12 school.
