"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."

"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."
