The International School of the Stockholm region (ISSR) is a publically funded English speaking school founded by the City of Stockholm in response to the growing demand for a truly international education.
A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Programme in 1968.
In a City of Stockholm School the students are in focus. Therefore, we constantly work hard to fine tune our education towards the students' needs.
Here we give you instructions on who can apply and how to apply.
The procedure for admission is the same for the Middle and Primary Years Programme, but differs for the Diploma Programme.

Read about ISSR in the The Guide to Excellence 2014 Edition, by Cambridge University Students' Union.
Books are available at the administration.
Since 1999, ISSR has been authorized to offer the Diploma Programme. ISSR is also a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that ISSR believes is important for our students.
Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

The CAS ambassadors of ISSR have been invited by Education USA to Malmö Borgarskola from August 29th-31st to partake in a training regarding the university application process.
Parents are welcome to learn about the programme, the teachers who teach in the programme and the mentors who support the students. Parents to high school students will pick up login information to SchoolSoft where they will report absence.
