Preparing students to live in a multilingual and multicultural world

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. ISSR is an accredited continuum school offering all three IB programmes; Primary Years Programme,  Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. At ISSR priority is given to families with a temporary work contract throughout all programmes (PYP, MYP and DP). PYP and MYP are only open to families with a temporary work contract. The DP is open to both the local and international communities but priority is given to families with temporary work contract.

ISSR is built on an atmosphere where intellectual growth, personal reflection and international mindedness are the core concerns.  Our primary goal is to prepare our students for higher education as we also prepare them for life.
