Gumbostrand school has three teachers and approximately 50 pupils in grades 1– 6. In addition, the school houses a preschool for some 10 pupils. The school language is Swedish.
The school is located near the sea, which makes the proximity of the sea and the archipelago an important part of the school’s daily life. The education is provided with an emphasis on nature and environmental sciences, Swedish as a mother tongue, and mathematics.
The school canteen and gym are located in the nearby Gumbontalo, which acts as a meeting place for the residents in the archipelago.
All schools in the municipality of Sipoo use versatile working methods and teaching aids. Schools encourage the children to express themselves in a positive way, and to take responsibility for themselves and their surroundings. Schools take part in both national and international development projects. All schools in the municipality value peaceful, quiet and safe working conditions, innovative thinking, and an ecologically friendly way of life. Together with the children and the entire school staff, we promote these values every day. The school applies an antibullying program called KivaKoulu.
