Departments of Study

The school’s study system provides a wide range of opportunities for students to pursue their own interests and to prepare them primarily for the academic challenges of higher education. The school has three major departments: humanities, life sciences, and maths and physics. Every department offers a set of subjects with the aim to provide a well-rounded education in the specific area of study.

In addition to attending regular academic classes, students must also attend practical classes related to their chosen area of study. The subjects are taught in Estonian. There are also elective courses and extracurricular activities, such as choir and folk dancing.
