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

Guardians and children are both welcome to a meeting at the Nisbeth house on Tuesday, February 11th. Nordic International School is already present in several Swedish cities and at the briefing, you will meet executives, teachers and pupils from our other schools. We will answer any questions and explain more about our profile with English as the primary teaching language, evidence-based education and a focus on discipline – all to maximise every pupil’s academic progress. Doors open at 5.30 p.m. and the presentation starts at 6 p.m. If you plan on coming, please email us at info@nordicinternational.se.

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. If you have any questions before the meeting, please contact us at info@nordicinternational.se or 010-205 17 10.


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
