Open House 2019

Open House 2019

Our teachers come from all over the world and teach in both English and Swedish, depending on the subject. We also have an after school program called Junior Club, where our Juniors can hang out, enjoy games, clubs, and have a snack together with their friends. Parents are invited to “fika” in the Lunch Hall with the Principal, Assistant Principals and teaching staff. The “fika” is sold by students to raise money for their grade 9 prom. 

 

Våra lärare kommer från hela världen och undervisar både på engelska och svenska beroende på ämnet. Vi har även en verksamhet efter skoltid som vi kallar för Junior Club. Det är en verksamhet för våra Junior School elever där de kan spela spel, umgås, delta i olika klubbar samt äta mellanmål tillsammans med sina kamrater. Föräldrar inbjuds till fika i matsalen med rektor, biträdande rektorer och lärare. Elever i årskurs 9 säljer fika till förmån för sin avslutningsbal.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Spring term! We are into the second full week of school after the well deserved Christmas break. Teaching is in full swing, including schedule breaking activities such as stop-motion animation workshops for year 8 and sessions on healthy teeth from “folktandvården”, year 5 and 8. The year 9’s are also starting their first gymnasie choice period - all very exciting. Coming up we have the parents evenings for grades 4-6 next Wednesday (week 5) and 7-9 the following Wednesday (week 6). Please check Schoolsoft for the exact times for every year group. Welcome!

Great Results!

Great Results!

IES now have 37 schools across Sweden and our combined results clearly show that our ethos pays off. IES Uppsala has been awarded an internal IES award for strong grade integrity, meaning that we have a strong correlation between national test results in grade 9 and final grades, something we are very proud off. The teachers collaborate closely, co-planning and assessing to ensure we interpret the curriculum in the same way, giving coherent, strong and fair results.

With that I Wish you a peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Holocaust Survivor

Holocaust Survivor

Holocaust survivor, Livia Fränkel, visited our school on United Nations Day, 24th of October. She addressed our grade 9 students and gave a detailed historical account of events, intertwined with her own story of growing up in Transylvania and how eventually the war also reached them. This was a much appreciated lecture, and of great importance. We were most grateful to have her come to our school.
