Student assistance and support
Student wellbeing is ensured in many ways. Guidance counsellors support students in study planning and course selection. Special needs teachers assist students with difficulties in their studies and with applications for possible special arrangements at the Matriculation Examination. Students can also turn to school nurses, school psychologists and school social workers.
More information on student wellbeing can be found from the webpages of Helsinki general upper secondary schools. Support for studies and wellbeing is also provided by the online service Toisen asteen yhteys (Close Encounters of the 2nd Kind).
