Our School

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.


International Baccalaureate (IB)

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.

IB Authorization

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.
