Oulu International School (OIS) is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School owned by the City of Oulu and exists to meet the educational needs of the international and internationally minded community in and around Oulu. As an authorised IB school, we offer the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) programmes.
We started in Kasarmintie 4 in August 2001 under the administration of Myllytulli Primary and Secondary schools and opened our doors as an independent school in August 2002. The teaching staff is highly qualified and experienced and offers a wide range of expertise to support all areas of the curriculum through the first nine years of Basic Education. We currently number about 446 children and 37 teachers. Students are taught in age-based classes, supported by a team of auxiliary staff.
