Taavetti High School has been doing well in the matriculation examination through the years. In many subjects, when compared to Finnish high schools, we are well above the national average. Your success at school is extremely important to us. Thus our teachers and student counsellor offer you continuous guidance with your studies and help you plan your course selection depending on your future career aspirations and studies in mind. We are looking for highly motivated students, and require that students gain on average 50 credits per year.
Apart from all the mandatory subjects, our school offers you a wide selection of study units in modern European languages and in business studies, some of which include an opportunity to hands-on working experience through our school co-operative and a chance to study trips, both locally and internationally. We work with the higher education institutions in our region (LUT, LAB). You can take orientation studies, university courses and study units already while studying at the high school. These are accepted as a part of your upper secondary degree.
Students receive a laptop, digital studying material and school books for their studies. The school serves a free lunch every school day. Students also get free access to the gym in Taavetti-halli.
