Finnish students are being wise beyond their years when they answer 'less is more' rather than 'greed is good' when asked to define what success means for them. Finland's school system has succeeded in making these students understand the importance of learning, work-life balance and being well-rounded individuals as they grow up.

Great country. No matter what your background, everyone gets the same education. Their goal is to create broad citizens who are prepared for an international work market. They start school at age 7, stay with the same teacher for their classes, use first names only. It is a relaxed, casual environment. Small classes with 20 students.
