Why Finnish International School

 

  • Finnish learning method relies on the three main principles – trust, freedom and equality.
  • Our days are filled with joy of learning. We focus for each individual child and every child is important and in the middle of his/her own learning process. Therefore we will use modern student-centric pedagogical practises to facilitate learning process.
  • One of the most important hallmarks of the Finnish School is the development of individualism, analytical, innovative mindset, and learn for life. Finnish learning method promotes revealing the interests and inclinations of students from the early stage of the school.
  • We do not overemphasize the student workload. Human brains require breaks and pauses in a learning, especially during first grades in primary school. Quality comes always before quantity for us. It is important for us that our school days are relatively short and there are recesses after every lesson.
  • Integrated Subjects developing real life skills – teachers plan joint lessons with other teachers.
  • The latest technology use and learnig the skills of the future
  • Learning happens all the time everywhere. So therefore we will learn many things also during the recesses, out in a nature, during the field trips etc.
  • It is a common myth, that there are no homework and no tests in Finnish school. Sure, we have some tests, but we do not overemphasize the role of testing and assessing. We are learning for life not for tests and we do emphasize the 21st century skills for the future.
  • We have highly trained, very skilled, top-professionals teachers and other staff. We will formidably invest for continuous teacher on-site training and staff development. We feel that our school is a kind of a family and therefore it is important for us that the staff dedicated and devoted collaboratively work for the pupils.
  • Continuous discussion and sharing ideas is what is always needed in educational sciences. We would gladly share ideas and participate in cooperation to teachers development widely for the future impact for whole Georgia.
