Upper secondary education

The Helsinki Normal Lyceum, more commonly known as Norssi, is a teacher training school that operates under the Faculty of Educational Sciences of the University of Helsinki and comprises comprehensive school grades 1-3 & 7–9 and a general upper secondary school.

Norssi hosts approximately 245 upper secondary school students and admits 80 new students each year.

Norssi’s long history as a classical school is manifested in the fact that we are one of the few Finnish schools that offer Latin from the 7th grade onward. Our school also has a Latin motto: “Non scholae sed vitae”, meaning that we do not learn for school, but for life.
