Internationella Engelska Skolan to open a new school in Växjö

Växjö skiss

Internationella Engelska Skolan will open a new school in Växjö, scheduled for August 2022.

The school will be built in Telestadshöjden, a newly built neighbourhood just south of Växjö where Skanska and Växjö Municipality are developing a new residential area featuring numerous new apartments and detached and semi-detached houses. The school, which will be a compulsory school with two parallel classes for grades F–9, will accommodate approximately 600 students when fully developed. Provided all the necessary permits are obtained, the queue for IES Växjö will open on 1 February 2021.

- We are proud to be part of Växjö’s focus on education in this new neighbourhood. The school will be built according to a high sustainability standard, which is important to our students and to us. We look forward to welcoming all students, regardless of their background, to our new school where, in a safe and orderly learning environment, they can be motivated to do their best, says Anna Sörelius Nordenborg, CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan.

- A new, attractive residential area is being developed in Växjö, featuring several new homes and now also a new school. I’m pleased that we have a free school operator investing in Växjö and building a school in Telestadshöjden, says Anna Tenje, Chair of the Municipal Board (Moderate Party), Växjö Municipality.
