Kankaanpään Yhteislyseo Upper Secondary School is a learning environment for approximately 200 students, located in the beautiful area of Unesco Global Geopark Lauhanvuori-Hämeenkangas.
The relatively small size of our school as well as the friendly atmosphere provide safety and support whenever needed. Our expert teaching staff and the school’s modern facilities are our main assets. Well-being of our students is very important to us. We arrange excursions and outdoor activity days on a regular basis.
Our focus lies on a wide general education but we also offer our students the possibility to take a wide range of optional courses in entrepreneurship education, environmental education, natural sciences and languages (English, Swedish, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese).
Kankaanpään Yhteislyseo excels in science courses. Our curriculum includes applied courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology alongside the national obligatory and optional courses.
We co-operate with universities and universities of applied sciences, which enables our students to enroll on university courses. Our students may even be admitted to some degree programs in the local university of applied sciences by passing a designated amount of university courses during their upper secondary education (nursing / technology).
There are affordable rental apartments nearby. Average rent for a studio (single-room) is 350 euros, but it might be wise to rent a bigger apartment together with a fellow student. The rent for an apartment with three rooms and a kitchen varies from 500 to 800 euros. Be prepared to pay one month’s rent as a rent security deposit.
