Principal's Welcome


What's going on in our school?


"At Internationella Engelska Skolan I am getting a good education that really prepares me for the future. I chose Internationella Engelska Skolan because of the school's focus on the English language, and I really enjoy becoming better and better at English. I also like the strict rules the school has; they create a relaxed working environment and make it easier for me to focus on my schoolwork. The teachers at Internationella Engelska Skolan are really good too – knowledgeable, friendly, engaged and fun!"

"My family has traveled quite a lot and I'm very interested in learning new languages, so Internationella Engelska Skolan seemed like the perfect school for me when I stared in sixth grade. The school premises are great and the teachers and staff are really nice. I like the fact the school has a broad mix of students, everyone has a different background and comes from a different part of Sweden or the rest of the world. What I like most about the school is that the teachers have high demands – they really motivate you to work hard and do your best."


ninth grade student

"I believe that it is important for children to have a solid knowledge of English in order to prepare them for future studies. I also find that it is good for everyone to have structure and a clear cut set of rules to abide to. Internationella Engelska Skolan provides both of these things. The teachers are knowledgeable, engaged and easy to get in touch with. There is orderliness in the school and our children's English has really improved. We are very happy that we chose Internationella Engelska Skolan."



"I chose Internationella Engelska Skolan because of their focus on creating a peaceful and inspiring environment for us students, and also because my older sister goes there and spoke very highly of the school. Every lesson is well planned and the teachers are all easy to connect to and get in touch with. I especially like the food. I always have a choice and if I don't like any of the dishes that are being served, there is always milk and cereals. My expectations were very high when I started at Internationella Engelska Skolan, and I am very happy to say that all my expectations have been met."

  3. Fill in the form including your details and those of your child so that we can stay in touch and let you know if a place becomes available.

Most of our schools begin their intake for the following academic year in the autumn term. The length of the process depends on how quickly we hear back from families who are offered places.

Write to the school in question and let them know your queue ID number or personnummer and the information that you would like to change. You can find contact details for our schools here.

There are no fees to attend IES schools. Our schools are funded in the same way as those run by the municipality, through the Swedish tax system and the school voucher (skolpeng).
