“A Finnish-type High School provides students with eligibility to higher education worldwide – but there is much more to it! We pay a lot of attention to students’ holistic well-being, because happy students are the best ones to learn the skills they need in the future.
If you are interested in taking your high school in the Finnish direction, we are happy to guide you.“

EduCluster Finland as a high school partner
EduCluster Finland is the quality partner for Finnish International High Schools. Through the partnership, EduCluster Finland provides mentoring, coaching and support to the schools to operate in a Finnish way.
Recruitment of Finnish-qualified teachers, professional development of academic staff and the possibility to obtain Finnish accreditation for the school are just a few examples of the benefits the partnership brings.
For students and staff, it means that Finnish quality criteria and operating principles are followed in every aspect. We want the high school experience to be truly Finnish in every environment and culture!
The magic happens when you work together. That is why we are with you – and for you.
