Our school recently celebrated 125 years of operation. Completed in 1892, our Kalevankatu school building is one of the oldest in Helsinki. Year 2018 marked the start of a large-scale modernisation effort for the building: renewing building services installations, improving the building’s energy-efficiency, repairing facades, windows and the roof as well as modernising the facilities in a way that supports the operations of the school and students' learning.
In January 2018 we relocated to Lehtikuusentie 4 in Meilahti, Helsinki for the duration of the renovations. At the moment the process is expected to take 2 years — we are planning to return to Kalevankatu in January 2020 to find a wonderfully up-to-date school environment with all its historical value preserved.
