Basic education in Lappeenranta

Basic education refers to general education for the entire age group. Compulsory education begins the year your child turns seven. Compulsory education ends when a young person turns 18 or when they gain a matriculation examination or vocational examination.

In addition to the schools maintained by the city, Lappeenranta also has a Steiner School maintained by private operators as well as the Finnish-Russian School of Eastern Finland, which focuses on Russian language and culture.

We aim to organise basic education in such a way that every child can attend school according to their skills and experience the joy of learning. In addition to smooth studies, we also consider it important that the pupils feel safe at school.
