According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Estonia is a small, Baltic nation located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea and bordered by Latvia to the south and Russia to the east. The country has a total area of 45,227 square kilometers, making it one of the smallest countries in Europe. Geographically, Estonia is divided into three distinct parts: lowland plains in the north and west, hilly uplands in the center, and islands off its western coast. The highest point in Estonia is Suur Munamagi at an altitude of 318 meters above sea level. Estonia’s educational system consists of four levels: pre-primary school (ages 3-7), primary school (ages 7-14), secondary school (ages 14-18) and higher education (ages 18+). Pre-primary education is not compulsory but it is available for those who can afford it. Primary education is compulsory for all children between 7-14 years old but attendance rates are low due to poverty and poor access to schools in rural areas. Secondary education is free for students who complete primary school successfully but again attendance rates are low due to financial constraints or lack of interest from students. Higher education is provided by public universities which are free for those who have passed their secondary school exams or by private universities which can be quite expensive. In addition to formal education programs, there are also non-formal programs that provide alternative learning opportunities such as adult literacy classes or vocational training courses designed to equip adults with job-related skills.
