Finland Elementary School services the needs of nearly 600 learners in Kindergarten through 4th Grade.
Finland is a school that provides high expectations for learners by personalizing and individualizing instruction. The students and staff pride themselves on maintaining an outstanding environment for learning by practicing the seven core virtues that are cornerstones of the Basic School Concept. These virtues provide students with a blueprint of how to treat each other as well as how to maximize student, staff and family efforts in regards to academic and social growth.
Finland Elementary is also a school-wide Title I building. Title I is the nation's largest federal assistance program for schools. The program provides all children with the help they need to be successful in school.
