Kangasniemen lukio (Kangasniemi secondary school) is a secondary school offering all-round education for three years, after which there is a matriculation examination. The school is relatively small in size; approximately 70 students, 14 teachers, one headmaster and a school secretary. Our high school is situated on a rural but valuable lake district and surrounded by versatile nature. The international project is very valuable to us as our students have few opportunities for international contact. We have neither multicultural families nor students in our school or in the region. That said, we wish to further and respect cultural variety and equality in our school community. By multicultural co-operation, we will strengthen students’ intercultural education and reduce social integration. The project offers a valuable opportunity for teachers to innovate and exchange best practices in teaching. Our school, being part of a network of sport-related schools, emphasizes well-being, sports training and health education in the curriculum. Ecological awareness is a compulsory part of the curriculum. Our strength to this project lies in this area. A range of languages such as English, Swedish, German and French are studied in our school. Yet, it is capital that the students profit further in their use of languages by cultural exchange.
 
Our school takes advantage of the information technology in our pedagogy. All students have their own laptops and at the moment we are changing our matriculation examination electronic. The use of electronic material is the pedagogical strengths of our teachers. Our school has got an Erasmus team that is dealing with all the activities and planning the work that has to be done. The team meets regularly and is managed by the Erasmus coordinator. As all team members are directly involved in the Erasmus work it will not be a problem that one of the members will take responsibility if the coordinator has resign for any reason.
