Metsäkylä School, Finland

Metsäkylän Yhtenäiskoulu is a comprehensive school located in the town of Ylöjärvi in Finland. At the beginning of the school year 2019-2020, our school has approximately 770 pupils in grades 1-9.

Metsäkylän Yhtenäiskoulu has expanded considerably between the years 2015 and 2019. The school started as a mere primary school. Originally, it had three parallel classes in grades 1-6. Today we teach both primary school and upper comprehensive school pupils, and there are four or five parallel classes in each grade. Roughly 550 of our pupils attend primary school and 220 pupils upper comprehensive.

As the number of pupils has increased in our school, new classrooms and facilities have been added. In 2016, a C-part with 33 new teaching facilities and classrooms was built. Two years later, in 2018, a D-part was introduced. The D-part included a large new gymnasium, facilities for crafts teaching and a youth centre. Finally, an A-part with learning spaces for seven classes was added in 2019, and the older school gymnasium was renovated.

As the school year 2019-2020 begins, the renovation and furnishing of our school is almost complete. Newly refurbished Metsäkylän Yhtenäiskoulu celebrates its grand opening in the spring 2020. Welcome to visit our modern and well-equipped school!
