Rantasalmi High School is a small and friendly school in eastern Finland by Lake Saimaa. We have very qualified teachers. The student counselor, the school curator and the school psychologist work there in the same building for you, too. Every student receives an own laptop for the studying time and the students borrow the school books from the local library or get an electric license for studying material from their teacher, depending on the subject. The school lunch is free. Studying at our school has no expenses.
Accommodation is possible in a shared flat. Everybody has an own room and the kitchen and bathroom are shared. The flat is furnished. It takes 10 minutes to walk to the school from the flat. The rent is 150 euros per month. The students may take extra lunches from the school kitchen for the evening and for weekends.
The school days are from 8.00 am to 2.00 pm. After the school day you may join to the music theater lessons as an actor (acting, singing and dancing three times a week) or a musician in the orchestra (once a week) if you want. Also it is possible to study studio technology after the school day. These studies are also free for our students. Gym, indoor ice rink and sports field are nearby as well as jogging, skiing and skating routes. Gym is free for the new students. The indoor ice rink has a small cost (2eur/time). There is a youth house in the village center to spend time together. It is also possible for a student to get financial support for one chargeable hobby in Rantasalmi.
Every graduated student will receive a grant of 500 euros from the local education foundation.
