As we see radical changes fueled by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, only an education focused on attributes rather than skills will be able to support this change. We need schools that develop empathy, socialization, collaboration, creativity and entrepreneurship. The goal is to support the children’s balanced growth, development and learning. They learn the importance of building relationships and develop social, leadership, and interpersonal skills.

Grades 1 to 2:
Becoming a school child
The teaching of year classes 1 and 2 takes into account the pre-school and early-stage education skills. The special function of Year 1 and 2 is to provide a foundation for pupils’ positive perception of themselves as a learner and a pupil and to develop the skills for later work and learning. At the beginning of basic education, careful monitoring of each pupil’s progress is particularly important in order to ensure that the student has the preconditions for progress.
Developing as a learner
The specific task of year 3 to 6 is to learn how to develop learning skills and to identify and develop their own learning habits and skills. Students are encouraged to accept themselves, to identify and defend their borders and rights, and to take care of their own safety. They are also guided to understand their responsibilities and responsibilities as well as constructive expression and interaction. No bullying or discriminatory behavior is allowed. Pupils’ interest in ethical and moral issues is utilized by creating opportunities for discussion and reflection, as well as for engaging in participation and accountability. Students are encouraged to make choices from their own starting point, avoiding gendered solutions. Particular attention will be paid to the needs of pupils’ guidance and support.
In the years 3 to 6 classes, the basic skills acquired in the lower grades are strengthened and supplemented and new things are learned. The number of subjects is increasing. The implementation of multidisciplinary learning modules strengthens co-operation between the subjects and provides opportunities for students to gain valuable experience in their age. Learning functions can increase the functionality of the work.
Low Secondary School
The specific tasks of years 7 to 9 are to guide and support pupils during strong years of development, to provide for the completion of studies in elementary education and to encourage all students to continue their studies.
Particular care is taken to ensure that each student is given the best possible conditions for postgraduate studies and is able to reflect on their solutions on a realistic and informed basis.
The individual differences in development between students, including the different development rhythms of boys and girls, are starting to appear more clearly and affecting the school work.
Students are guided to understand their own development and are encouraged to accept themselves and take responsibility for themselves and their own studies, friends and the surrounding environment.
Students are supported in community affiliation that does not accept any form of bullying, sexual harassment, racism or any other discrimination.
Relationships, individual encounters, and the diversity of working methods and learning environments strengthen student motivation. Practice-based assessment and feedback practices are designed and implemented so that they are interactive and learning-driven, and encourage students to work individually and collectively as targets. The mission of the program is to provide opportunities for adolescents to be self-confident and to gain self-knowledge, to belong to a community, to learn to be adaptable, to be academically competent and challenged, and to create a vision for their personal future.
Upper Secondary School
The role of upper secondary education is to strengthen broad-based education. In high school education, general education consists of values, knowledge, skills, attitudes, and will to enable individuals capable of critical and independent thinking to act responsibly, sympathetically, comfortably and successfully.
During the high school, the student acquires knowledge and know-how relevant to people, cultures, nature and society.
High School Teaching enriches the student to understand the complex interdependencies in life and the world and to structure broad-based phenomena.
During education, the student builds on their identity, humanity, and worldview. At the same time, students develop their relationship with the past and focus on the future. The upper secondary education guides the student to prepare future plans and lifelong learning. Finnish School of Kosovo brings together the values and knowledge needed to be learned, through the most advanced methods – programming labs, robotics, chemistry, physics and biology, with the music studio, art and theatre venue, kitchen rooms, or the language cabinet as a polygamous room. Sports venues, the library, book fairs, assessment centers and career counseling, and especially getting to know the working environment of a Finnish company, grant our school the primacy of innovative ideas for teenagers of Kosovo.
