Setting high academic expectations for all students is essential at Internationella Engelska Skolan - IES. We encourage a constant progress in learning. One of which is studying the arts. Art education helps improve academic performance, not just through creativity, but it improves learning in areas like math and science as well as the literary field.
Art education also fosters collaboration and group learning. Often times, it brings the classroom together, helping students learn from, and aid each other as they persevere towards creating something together.
A prime example is the "Be Kind" project. Internationella Engelska Skolan Västerås Grade 4 students participated in the Art project and we would like to share a few pictures.
