The school will be housed in a newly renovated space on floors 3 and 4 at Vallgatan 12. This will be in the same building as Kronoberg Skola that is a part of the same organisation as Nordic International School.
Right now, our building is in the midst of a large renovation process making sure that everything is ready for the start of school in August. We cannot accept any visitors at this time.

We will begin the admissions process as soon as possible and work our way through the queue. The students who are accepted to the school will be invited to a meeting with a representative from Nordic International School that we call a One-to-One meeting. Here, we will go through our expectations and requirements of the students and the students and their guardians will be given the opportunity to ask any questions that they have. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, these meetings will be held digitally. The school-start is scheduled for August 18th.

Our schools have an international profile. We follow the Swedish curriculum, however certain parts of the education is taught in English. Nordic International School is a primary school for years 4-9 and we offer evidence-based education with a focus on academic progress and a high level of discipline.
Yes, we have a uniform policy for all students and a dresscode for all staff. The reasons for this are several:
It strengthens the international atmosphere of our schools (uniforms are common in international schools).
It builds a high ambition-focused culture at school.
It makes everyone equal since no one uses branded clothing.
At the start of every school year, we provide clothes to all students – shirts and cardigans. The clothes are provided free of charge to all students.
– 3 light blue polo shirts
– 2 dark blue zip cardigans
– 3 light blue polo shirts
– 2 dark blue v-neck cardigans
We believe in having a calm learning environment and therefore expect our students to behave. We have implemented a disciplinary system to uphold this. If a student misbehaves once he or she is given a warning. If a student misbehaves twice they are sent out of the classroom to finish their work at the administration. The third time a student misbehaves they are given a detention after school.
No, students are not allowed to use their phones during the school-day. Mobile phones are given to teachers in the beginning of the day and returned to the students when the school-day is over.
Before a lesson starts the students line up outside of the classroom and greet the teacher. They then quietly stand behind their chairs waiting for the teacher to invite them to sit down. Lessons at Nordic International School are calm, organized, and well-structured under the leadership of the teaching staff.
Yes, if enough people request junior club it is offered to students in years 4 and 5.
No, the majority of our students have only attended Swedish schools prior to joining us. Our teachers are comfortable teaching all levels of English. Our schools follow the Swedish School curriculum, despite up to half the instruction being offered in English.
