about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Finnish education is recognized as one of the world's best education systems, but it is available for Finns only. There has not been a high-quality school concept based on Finnish education in the international private school markets. Polar Partners decided to combine the best parts of Finnish education system to a comprehensive one-stop service for school owners; this is the Polar School concept.

How does your innovation work in practice?

The Polar School concept is a comprehensive school concept based on the world’s best educational system, Finnish education. The concept includes all the aspects of high-quality education designed and localized to any environment. The Polar School concept is an award-winning concept and has been granted the Design from Finland mark as a sign of high-quality Finnish design. The Polar School concept has six aspects which are all designed to work seamlessly together. These aspects are International Finnish curriculum, modern learning materials and equipment, support for management and operation, certified teacher training and toolkit, multifunctional school architecture, student wellbeing and support. The school design and set-up process is overseen by the experienced Polar Partners project management team and a body of Finnish educational experts, which guarantees high-quality results. When working with us, you have access to all latest tools, expertise and know-how of Finnish education!

How has it been spreading?

The need and demand is huge! Obviously establishing a new school or developing your existing school is a long process which takes time to finish. Polar Partners first Finnish International School was established to Georgia in 2019. We have conducted a project preparations or feasibility studies to several countries with the plans to start the school design and set-up process as our client has all the pieces to the puzzle figured out - hopefully we can witness the next schools in Egypt, Myanmar and Chile.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Establish your own school based on Finnish education or develop your current school with Finnish methods or enroll as a student to Georgia.
