Futuraskolan International School of Stockholm offers an international education in Grades 1–9 for families who wish their children to experience a genuine international school at an affordable cost. We admit students from the international expatriate community who have recently moved to Sweden. We accept Swedish students whose families have moved back to Sweden after attending an international school abroad and wish to continue their international education. We also accept students permanently living in Sweden who will be moving from Sweden and will have to continue their education at an international school abroad. We currently have students from over 50 different nationalities at our school.
Futuraskolan International School of Stockholm does not discriminate on the basis of religion, ethnic or national origin or gender in our admissions or educational policies. Futuraskolan International School in Stockholm strictly adheres to our Plan Against Discrimination and Harassment which abides local Swedish laws from harm and acts in accordance with our Child Protection Policy which aims to protect our students by following the local Swedish Child Protection Laws, the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) and meeting the new Council of International Schools (CIS) specific standards related to the International Task Force on Child Protection in their most recent edition of accreditation standards.
We welcome prospective parents and guardians to arrange a private tour of the school prior to admittance. Please contact our School Administrator for an appointment. Placement shall be based upon the student’s age, his/her previous grade placement and previous school records.
In Grades 1-5 we are using the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), a learning focused curriculum, designed to help the children learn to enjoy what they learn.
- Learn the essential knowledge, skills, and understanding of a broad range of curriculum subjects
- Engage with their learning so that they remain committed to learning throughout their school careers and their lives
- Develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and to respond to the changing contexts of their future lives
- Develop a sense of their own nationality and culture at the same time as developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others
In Grades 6-8 we use the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). The curriculum provides a balanced education that will equip young people for effective participation in the modern world.
It responds specifically to the needs of middle school students by providing independence and interdependence in their learning through discrete subject learning and themes, encouraging learning that helps them make connections that are relevant to their own lives.
It involves active, skills-based learning, promotes self-reflection and encourages students to use the very latest media platforms to present their learning and express their thinking.
Our Grade 9 students follow the same core subject offerings as our other Middle School students, but do not follow the IMYC curriculum framework. Our Grade 9 learners follow a modified schedule that allows them to prioritize the specific needs of their year group, including: Discovery Project, High School application process, etc.
Our aim is to prepare our students for the rigour of high school by exposing them to educational experiences that create the foundation of preparedness.
