Finnish International School of Tampere (FISTA)
The autumn term starts on Tuesday 10.8.2021 at 9am. More detailed schedules will be posted here at the beginning of August.
The Finnish International School of Tampere, or FISTA, is a comprehensive school offering basic education for grades 1-9. Starting from August 2021 we will also have English language preschool classes in our school.
FISTA has around 820 students and 85 staff members (school year 2020-2021). We are located in central Tampere in a building that was renovated in 2014-2017.
FISTA follows the City of Tampere curriculum which is based on the Finnish National Core Curriculum, set by The Finnish National Agency for Education. The main language of tuition is English.
FISTA serves families living in the Tampere area. All applicants are invited to a language test to ensure that they are able to participate in English language education.
The school started as Amurin kansakoulu in 1954. The first English language classes started in 1990 and the school became FISTA in 2012.
