Mission

Basic school education for everyone! – This is the foundation of our activities.

The main mission of Porkuni School is to offer basic education to all these children who have moderate or severe intellectual disability or who do not have the possibility to study in other schools in Estonia. There are no limitations for the students wishing to enter school, which are connected with behaviour, health or place of residence.

Children study according to the national coping school curriculum.

The curriculum can be divided into two parts:

Weekly topcs
