Kirkkoketo School

Our school is centrally located in the town centre of Kuusamo, close by the Kuusamo Holy Cross Church (Pyhän Ristin kirkko). The Kirkkoketo School has a long tradition as it is the oldest school in Kuusamo.

Our school has age groups from preschoolers to second-graders. In the School, we also have pupils within extended compulsory education, who integrate into the ordinary education classes according to their skills. In total, there are about 150 of us, depending on the age groupMorning and afternoon activities are a natural part of the activity in our school.

Inside the old walls and in the middle of the historical school stories we provide up-to-date education. Enthusiastic teachers along with other personnel take care of this!
