There are about 900 students from Grades 1-9 in our school and more than 50 teachers in Metsokangas Comprehensive School. Our school day starts at 8.15 AM and usually we study 4-6 hours per day. One lessons take 60 minutes and then we have a break outside. Our lunch break takes 30 minutes. Every day we eat a healthy lunch including salad, ryebread, potatoes/rice/spaghetti with f. ex. meat/chicken sauce. For drink we have water and milk. The lunch is free of charge for all students. However, teachers have to pay for their lunch.
The keythings in our schools are 21st Century Skills, Vertical and Horisontal Co-operation between students and teachers, Teaching with technology and also we have took part in many Projects in Finland and worldwide. We are also one of three Showcase Schools of Microsoft in Finland, so we use a lot of Microsoft technologies and software.
