WHO WE ARE...

Hello and welcome to Europaskolan, the Swedish school with an international heart in the center of Stockholm.

 

We believe the best way to provide a high quality education to our students is to combine the best of the Swedish school system with the best from international education and deliver it to the students in an engaging and inspiring way. To best achieve this, we became an authorized IB world school, and run their PYP and MYP curricula in conjunction with the Swedish national curriculum. To further emphasize the union of Swedish and international education we have two languages of instruction, English and Swedish.

 

We also believe that children learn best when they feel safe and they feel safest when they are surrounded by adults they can trust. Therefore we keep our class sizes down and encourage our teachers to get to know as many students from other classes as possible. This creates an extended family-like atmosphere that kids can thrive in.

 

Naturally, an education must also be inspirational and grounded in a common set of democratic values, and thanks to the IB programs and our dedicated staff who implement the programs every day, we have just that. The IB’s core values derive from the belief that students should be taught to be global citizens, capable of participating in and changing our interconnected democratic societies for the better. An important part of that education is encouraging students to become independent thinkers capable of collaborating with others to enact meaningful and positive change in the communities they are a part of. Our hope is that they will embody the principles and qualities we aim to instill in them and bring it with them out into the world.

Sincerely, 

Matthew Ouellette, Head of School

OUR STORY

Europaskolan was founded in 1998 by two teachers from Estonia who thought the education their children were receiving in Sweden could use a little international inspiration. After researching the various international educational bodies it was decided the school would eventually be an IB world school and by 2007, the goal had been achieved. What began as a small school with 60 students and 6 employees grew into two schools of over 900 students and over 100 employees. The passion and vision of the two founders has always been present in the school and their goal has always been to provide the best internationally inspired education possible to their students.
