Nordic International School Kalmar

Have you made a decision about which school your child should attend next academic year? A city like Kalmar needs a wide range of schools to choose from. Right now, we are planning to widen that range from the fall of 2020 by starting an elementary school with an international profile. Nordic International School has gained access to premises that breathe classic education, in the heart of Kalmar.

The premises, originally built for the Nisbeth School, are located on Linnégatan 5 and were until recently home to Linnæus University. The building with its history is a perfect fit for Nordic International School, a school with high academic ambitions and an international profile. Initially applications will be open for years 4–7 with years 8–9 opening as the accepted pupils get older.

Information meeting

We are happy to invite you to an extra information meeting. Welcome to Akademikrogen (Nygatan 18) on March 25th at 5:30 p.m. To register, please send an e-mail to Please specify number of persons attending.

We will present the same things as we did in February. We will therefore answer questions and explain more about our profile with English as the primary teaching language, evidence-based education and a focus on discipline – all to maximize every pupil’s academic progress.

If you do not have the possibility to attend, you are welcome to watch a recording of our prior information meeting here (We apologize for the bad sound quality).

Register your child

To apply, you need to register your child in the school queue-system. Admission is handled through a queue system based on the date of registration. Starting the second year of operation, the school will accept admission through sibling priority.


Nordic International School Kalmar will open in August 2020

There has been a great interest for the planned start of Nordic International School in Kalmar. The school will open in August and will soon start with the admissions process. Kalmar will therefore get a new elementary school with an international profile with focus on order and teaching based on methods supported by rigorous research. Read more.


Our mission

Based on rigorous research on what works to maximise students’ academic progress and achievement as well as their development of important social-emotional skills – such as conscientiousness, good manners, and grit – we have developed an educational model with three main features:

  • Knowledge and academic progress with teacher-led education and discipline
  • An international profile
  • Evidence-based practices
