At the International School of Älmhult, we are encouraging our students to become international individuals. This means that broad-mindedness is our educational platform. It means an internationally based curriculum and a multi-cultural environment. It also means that all our teaching is done in English.
We believe that a low teacher-to-student ratio is one of the most critical elements of a quality education. That is why we keep our classes small. The result is a friendly and learning enriched environment for all our students.
Most lessons are held in a renovated school building close to the centre of Älmhult. There are recreational areas just around the corner, and most work places are only a few minutes walk away.
The school enjoys the use of additional facilities in a nearby school where classes such as science, music and physical education take place.
The school employs a staff of fully trained teachers with an international background. All the teachers working with implementing the programmes of learning within the school attend official IBO workshops.
Pre-school is a state school run by the local education authorities in Älmhult's municipality.
IKEA sponsors the school.
At the International School of Älmhult (ISA), we are a community of mulitcultural, open minded and hard working individuals who are committed to continuously work towards the development of a better world.
We believe in lifelong learning experiences that encourage natural curiosity, critical thinking, confidence, cultural sensitivity and responsibility to prepare our students for the demand of a globalised world.
