2020-03-18: Information in relation to the corona virus (Covid-19)

Nordic International School closely follows the development of the current situation regarding the coronavirus and the recommendations of the Swedish Government and Folkhälsomyndigheten.

Currently, the recommendation from the authorities is to keep pre-schools and schools (förskola och grundskola) open for students that are not showing any signs of illness. However we are preparing ourselves for a number of different scenarios for the future development, including a possible recommendation to close the school.

In order to maintain a safe school environment for all students and our staff, we apply a strict policy regarding signs of illness. Students and staff with symptoms of illness are expected to stay home. If symptoms appear during the school day, the student will be sent home after contact with the guardian. After recovering the student can come back to school after being symptom free for at least 48 hours.

If you are a guardian, you will be informed via Schoolsoft if there is any change to the current situation or recommendation.

We will update you continuous here.

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.
