About the school
ISSR became an IB World School in 1999 and since then the school has achieved results well above the IB world average. The school’s language of instruction is English.
The Diploma Programme
The Diploma Programme (DP) prepares students for success at university and life beyond. The programme is recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities.
For students who plan to continue their studies in Sweden, the DP Diploma, like all national Swedish programmes, gives you Grundläggande behörighet to Swedish universities.
Students study six subjects, including both sciences and humanities. Final exams and external assessment ensure global standards. In addition to selecting one subject from each of the six groups, all DP students also have to fulfil the three requirements at the core of the programme.
- The Extended Essay (EE) is an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects studied.
- Theory of Knowledge (TOK) is a course designed to encourage students to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing.
- Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) requires that students actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom.
At ISSR, the two years of the Diploma Programme are preceded by a preparatory year, which corresponds to grade 10 in international schools or the first year of Upper Secondary in Sweden.
- Student progress is continuously monitored by subject teachers and reported four times a year.
- External assessment means teachers do not set the grades, and this creates an open atmosphere making the students feel that teachers are on their side.
- The open, friendly and helpful atmosphere is reinforced by the fact that classes typically number around 20 students in line with IB recommendations.
Students are encouraged to join any of the school organized clubs in order to engage each other in debates, collaborate in international projects, provide service to the school and local community.
More than fun these activities are where students realize the importance of planning, collaboration and what it means to put learning to practice.
Students are also encouraged to create their own individual projects in order to foster individual creativity which can be connected to the students future educational path.
