The International School of the Stockholm Region’s mission is to provide a high quality international education and a safe learning environment.

ISSR will be managed by IB School South which has offered the Diploma Programme both to the international and the local communities since 1999 with results well above the world average.

The International School of the Stockholm Region’s states their learning environment will be built on an atmosphere where intellectual growth, personal reflection and international mindedness are the core concern of everyone. Their primary goals are to prepare their students for higher education as they also prepare them for life. Academically strong programmes, as the IB, provide a forum of inquiry and opportunities for the development of critical thinking and reasoning skills. These will be balanced by school-wide practices that encourage diversity and foster personal integrity, mutual respect and development of self-esteem.


All aspects of international school life are considered. ISSR will be free of charge and available to children of temporary residents in Stockholm and the surrounding region. The language of instruction will be English. English as an Additional Language (EAL) and mother tongue classes will also be provided according to need.


The school will have a library and a professional team for student health. The school will also offer extra curricular activities and after school care for students ages 5–11. ISSR is situated in the inner city near Skanstull. The fully equipped school building is easily accessed by car and public transportation.
