Based on rigorous research on what works to maximise students’ academic progress and achievement as well as their development of social-emotional skills – we have developed an educational model with three main features.
Knowledge, academic progress and discipline
At Nordic International School, we put great emphasis on knowledge and important socialemotional skills, such as conscientiousness, good manners, and grit. In this regard, our educational model is more ‘traditional’ than the ‘progressive’ student-led philosophy that has been dominant in Sweden since the 1990s.
An international profile
In an increasingly globalised and digitalised world, the understanding of and respect for different nationalities and cultures are becoming ever more important. Our international profile helps to spark students’ interest in the outside world and prepares them for life in a situation where national boundaries are becoming less important.
Students and guardians have high expectations of our ability to maximise each individual student’s knowledge and social-emotional skills. At our schools, all teaching must be based on methods supported by rigorous research.
”Seeing our students for who they really are, that’s something we spend a lot of time and energy on.”
- Mr Micael Emihl: Principal, Nordic International School Kalmar
