A message from the Principal

Nordic International School stands for order and discipline, bilingualism and focus on the knowledge development of the students. At our school, the teacher is an authority who is a leader in the classroom and who conveys knowledge to the students. Order and discipline is a concept that pervades our school. We have a clear code of conduct that is enforced in the same way by all members of staff and both students and staff follow a dress code. We do this because we see order as a prerequisite for learning.

Our school follows the Swedish national curriculum, but parts of the education is delivered in English, which is also the primary language that is spoken in school.

To us, the most important mission of a school is about the knowledge development of the students. Therefore, we use teaching methods that are supported by international research.

Mr Emil Wallin
Principal

 

Nordic International school is a good school for students with self-discipline. Students wanting to achieve good results with help of qualified teachers, that also have a great way of reaching out to every student no matter what level, should consider Nordic International school. A big plus is the school uniform concept which helps both parents and students.

Parent

Many people believe that you need to be an expert in English to go to our school, but that is certainly not the case. The level of English varies a lot among our students when they start at our school. Some have lived in other countries and have already become advanced in their language skills, others have not yet developed as far. We adapt the level to each student. What is most important is that you are motivated to study hard and learn.

Ms Madeleine Muller
Teacher in English och Music, NIS Karlstad

It is only in a calm, orderly and optimal learning environment, regulated by clear rules of interaction and utmost respect, that our students maximise their academic development.

Mr Roxton Stanley Bell
Assistant Principal NIS Karlstad
