The Finnish International School of Tampere, or FISTA, is a comprehensive school offering preschool education and basic education for grades 1-9. 

FISTA has around 1000 students and 110 staff members (school year 2023-2024). 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.
