Oulun Lyseon Lukio (Oulu Lyseo Upper Secondary School) is a Finnish school in the city of Oulu in northern Finland. There are about 50 teachers and about 500 students in the high school and 150 in the IB-study programme (2005).
In the autumn of 1874, Oulun lyseo started as a private Lyceum and it adopted Finnish as the official academical language. During the 1880s the school was admitted state aid and gradually the schools ownership was changed as state owned. In 1891 the first graduates were graduated from the state owned Oulun Lyseo.
Oulun Lyseo moved to the current school building in 1890. The building representing neoclassical style was designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel and built in 1831 as a Trivial school, which was the first school in the northern Finland that lead to university studies. Descendant of this old school nowadays is the University Teacher Training School (Oulun Normaalikoulun lukio). The building has been extended several times during its history.
