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. We will widen that range from the fall of 2020 by starting a primary 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 students get older.

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.
