Muonio comprehensive school's operating idea is to give students a positive value base. The goal is for parents, teachers and the entire school staff to commit to supporting the child's growth into a responsible member of society.

A total of 258 students (from kindergarten to 9th grade) will start in our comprehensive school in the fall of 2021. We operate in three different buildings (school, primary and secondary school). The "carpet" connecting the elementary and middle schools will be completed in the fall of 2021.

Our staff includes teachers, instructors, cleaners, property managers and an office secretary. The best way to reach us is through Wilma.

There is a "Reindeer Kick" field in our yard area, which is also in use outside of school hours. In addition, the yard has e.g. hut forest, swings, hobby horse track, ping-pong table and outdoor play area, which are also in use in the evenings. In addition to the trail network, the school's ski area also has a log cabin, which is used by the classes during the school day.

The following excursions are in our school's action plan

Pre-classes: Fall trip

1st-2nd grade: Vatikuru and Pallasjärvi nature tour every other year

3rd-4th grade: Olos wind farm and Särkitunturi every other year

5th-6th grade: Keimiötunturi or another nearby destination

6th grade: 3-5 day camp school with the money collected in spring 2022

7th-9th grade: Excursion to the nearby area Thu 9 September 2021

7th grade: 3-5 day camp school with the money collected in spring 2022

All classes have an outdoor day in spring 2022.
