Student cards

All Grade 1-12 students in Estonia are entitled to have a student card. All students of any age in Estonia can ride any mean of public transportation in Tallinn for free and your student card is proof that you indeed are a student. To get a student card, please bring a passport size photo to the office. All student cards need to be renewed at the beginning of every school year. If you already have a student card, please come by the office to renew it. 


Parking on Staadioni street

We would like to inform you that the traffic signage next to the school has been altered. Stopping, standing and parking are completely prohibited on the school side of Juhkentali street. Please be informed that the traffic police will be monitoring the situation and fines will be issued to those who breach this rule. Please forward this information to the drivers, in case your embassy/company hires taxis to transport the children. There is a parking lot 100 m up the street where the parking is free of charge for 2,5 hours with a parking clock. Please use that when you drop off/pick up children.
Please be aware that due to the weather, the pavement markings have not yet been updated to reflect the change but according to the Estonian Traffic Act the traffic signs on posts overrule the pavement markings.
