Vaala Upper Secondary School (gymnasium) offers a modern, attractive learning environment beside the nature and the beautiful landscape of lake Oulujärvi.

Our innovative and dedicated staff offers the best possible pedagogical approach, support and technology in order to support individual learning of the students. We strive for the results and we can proudly say that after graduation from Vaala Upper Secondary School, our students will have extremely good foundation for continuing studies e.g. in the University. Even though we are rather small school, we are actively developing our teaching, elaborating working methods, following the latest research of educational science and continuously taking part to several national and international projects.

Vaala Upper Secondary School is also an official Geopark school. That’s why Rokua UNESCO Global Geopark, as a designated site in UNESCO's International Geoscience and Geoparks Program, is actually included as a cross cutting theme in our local curriculum. That offers students more in depth knowledge of local history, geography, biology, etc. With Geopark we have a great pleasure having close cooperation with Universities, both in national and international level.
