Basic education

In Finland, local authorities are obligated to provide basic education for children and young people of compulsory school age (7–16 years) residing in the municipality. Basic education, including necessary equipment and text books, school transportation and meals, is free of charge. The primary responsibility for a child’s education lies with the parents. 

In Paimio, there are three primary schools and one comprehensive school. The responsibility of the provision of basic education lies with the Town of Paimio School Services. For enquiries, please contact the school office or the school in question.
