A message from the Principal
Nordic International School is an elementary school and stands for academic progress, discipline and teacher-led instruction based on evidence-based practices. 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.

“Since the school is working actively against exclusion, our daughter has got a bigger community network. Since her start at Nordic International School she has got a greater faith in her abilities. She has also developed incredibly much thanks to support from teachers and mentors. We are very satisfied with the school! The discipline, school uniform and community, create solid and stable kids who grow and develop in a safe environment.”
For us a clear focus on order and discipline is an absolutely essential part of how we operate. Otherwise it would be impossible for us to realise the core objective of our school – knowledge development. We can only attain best results if our students are prepared, disciplined and able to help create a positive and optimal learning environment.
Overall, discipline is also a key element in the way we approach our students and their education. We place high expectations on the students and their attitudes towards school. At the same time, our teachers also place high expectations on their own teaching and the way in which they engage with the students. We are convinced that our students benefit from clear rules. They know what is expected of them and they know what happens if they break the rules. Being explicit and giving clear examples is an important part of this.
