In connection with yesterday's article in Nya Wermlands Tidning, Internationella Engelska Skolan would like to clarify the following:
"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 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."
Olivia, ninth grade student
"Tack 'mentor'! Jag är så glad över det du skriver. Men mest tacksam är jag över att 'vårt barn' är så glad och nöjd. Vi har haft ett par jobbiga år på gamla skolan. Det är så kul att se och uppleva vilket fantastisk jobb ni gör på IES, där ni skapar en fantastisk skola och framför allt nöjda barn. Well done!"
Regarding regular monthly contacts home.
"The whole of IES Karlstad has helped me incredibly much getting ambitious and focused in my studies, while giving me so many fun and great moments there. I doubt I would have come this far in my studies without IES, so I am really proud of being an IES alumnus and also really happy that so many other students after me have got the opportunity to study there."
"“My child was bullied at the former school which made them become very introverted. My child started eating less and had no energy when they got home and barely spoke to us. After just six days at IES she comes home excited, my child is bragging about how much they have eaten because the food is so nice and finally being respected by peers. As a school you have made this change in just six days. You guys should be really proud. The only negative thing with the school is that my kids are already speaking much better English than I do”."
"“Tack finaste skolan för allt ni gör och har gjort för mitt barn. Jag känner mig så glad och lycklig över att mitt barn börjat på engelska skolan. Mitt barn kommer hem glad från skolan och pratar om sin klass som hen älskar. ”Alla är så snälla och tar hand om mig. De lärare jag har träffat är så snälla mamma. Jag är så glad att jag har börjat här. Det här kommer att bli så bra för mig” "
