63-year-old Mankkaanpuron koulu provides a pleasant, modern and safe learning environment. Since January 2009 we have had a new additional building and the old main building was completely renovated.
The safe learning environment of our school enables joy of learning. Diverse and pupil-centered methods support eagerness to learn and building a positive self-image. A pupil plays an active role as a learner and as a member of the school community.

ICT is used systematically in teaching and learning in our school. We also have a school library which gives good opportunities for teaching literature and research skills. For several years our school has taken part in Netlibris, a literature circle on the Internet. Our school sponsors a child in Nepal through Plan.
We work closely together with the parents’ association of our school. Cooperation between parents and teachers is important for us and we actively use various ways of communication, e.g. Wilma.
