In Vantaa, the support that a pupil requires is primarily organised by different flexible means in their local school.
Assessment is a whole that consists of more than giving grades and reports. Providing constructive and guiding feedback helps pupils understand about their own learning and identify their strengths.
In grades 7 through 9, pupils study common and optional subjects in line with the national distribution of lesson hours.
Guidance counselling supports students to make decisions and choices related to their daily life, studies, future education and future based on their own capabilities, values, backgrounds and interests.

Swedish language immersion begins in early childhood education or pre-primary education and lasts until the end of basic education.
Preparatory teaching is provided for children and young people who are not proficient enough in Finnish language to study in a group taught in Finnish.
