We offer Förskoleklass through to Åk 9 according to the Swedish National Curriculum. All classes, except language classes, are taught in Swedish. The National Agency of Education in Stockholm supervises operations.
The Swedish curriculum applies by agreement also to students from the other Nordic countries.
We want to inspire creativity and a desire for lifelong learning. We encourage students to think critically and to express their own opinions. Students are also taught to respect differences in people’s views and show empathy for the situation of others.
To make the transition between preschool and primary smoother, children participate in a school-preparatory year, the preschool class (Förskoleklass). This includes working with numbers, words, letters as well as social training in preparation for the start of school. The preschool class works in close proximity to the youngest school-children. The Scandinavian school offers a flexible school start, at 6 or 7 years of age.
We offer age-integrated and individualised education. Work is self-paced and independent of other classmates. Group affiliation is important. Therefore, we also work with the whole class and through our music profile we create cohesion across ages and groups. On several occasions during the academic year we give concerts and musical performances of various kinds and themes.
We take into account each student’s level of development and ability. All students have an individual development plan. Students are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their studies by planning parts of the weekly programme themselves. We work not only in the classroom but also by visiting museums, concerts, theatres, studying nature and making other field trips. The ability to cooperate, express ideas and listen and respect others is important.
All students learn Spanish. The school is accredited by the Spanish Ministry of Education, which also carries out supervision of the programme. Native Spanish speakers have additional tuition in Spanish Language, Literature and Social Studies according to the Spanish National Curriculum. Teachers of these subjects have a Spanish teaching degree. Other students study Spanish as a foreign language.
