"I am confident that I got more out of my years at IESÖ than I ever could in another secondary school in Örebro. " Anton, Class of 2006
- What if my child is accepted, we decline the offer and then change our mind?
If you decline to accept the place offered, your place will go to another student. Your registration will be accepted as of the date of your new application.
- Do you take in students with special needs?
Yes, our school is open to everyone. We do expect our prospective parents to let us know if their child has required special assistance previously or needs help in any way. Concerns regarding learning abilities/ disabilities, health, or nutrition should be brought to our immediate attention. School relevant information is a prerequisite to mutual understanding and academic success.
- Do you test students prior to admission?
No, no testing is permitted as part of the admission process.
- How does the admission process work?
We request that you fill in our application form, preferably online. If you do not have access to a computer, please call the school. Once the application form is received, it will be dated and you will be assigned a place in line. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis with one exception. If you have a brother or sister already in our school, we are allowed to give you an advanced placement on the waiting list.
- Does it cost anything to attend your school?
No, it does not cost anything to attend our schools. There are no tuition fees. Funding comes from the “skolpeng” or school subsidy, allocated to schools that are approved by “Skolverket” the Swedish National Agency for Education.
- Is it necessary for my child to know English well when starting at your school?
No. Knowing English well is not a prerequisite for starting in our schools. Most of our students have attended Swedish schools before coming to us and have acquired a basic foundation in English. Our experienced teachers are familiar with teaching English to students at various levels.
- In the unlikely event that I wish to make a complaint, how can I do this?
As we work together to create the right school environment in the best interests of our students, it is essential that there is a close and trusting relationship between each school and its parents. Where there is a complaint which the mentor teacher or Head of Year is unable to resolve, the next step is for the Assistant Principal or Principal to look into the matter. If a satisfactory solution cannot be reached within the school, complaints should then be addressed to the “Huvudman”.
