The school has about 80 students from the Hakkas and the surrounding villages, with some moving in. The school has close access to bathhouses and large natural areas that are used in all the students' activities. Hakkasskolan is a small school where we develop close relationships and dare to succeed and fail together. Our vision is "For a future where everything is possible!" We are constantly developing the teaching and our learning environments so that the students are given the best possible conditions for learning. Hakkasskolan has been granted an ERASMUS+ accreditation for 2021-2027. This means continuous collaborative projects with other schools around Europe with the possibility of travel within the service for all participating educators. The goals of the ERASMUS+ work are to cooperate with other schools in Europe that have similar challenges to ours, to strengthen the students' motivation to study several languages, to further develop distance learning and to give students and teachers the opportunity to look at their own home region from new perspectives.
