A student’s upper secondary school
Ylivieska Upper Secondary School aims to be a student’s upper secondary school. We aim to develop operations in such a way that you feel good about coming to school and studying the general upper secondary school syllabus and completing a university degree. This is not always successful, but together we can make things work better every time. This increases the quality of the upper secondary school. Quality does not refer to doing well in the comparisons of upper secondary schools, but above all, it refers to an individual student succeeding in the best possible way.
