Vår framgång bygger på tre grundläggande principer:
• Vi strävar ständigt efter högakademisk excellens
• Det förväntas en lugn och respektfull inlärningsmiljö
• Elever ska behärska både det svenska och det engelska språket

World Teacher Day

The 5th of October is World Teacher Day recognized by UNESCO. We at IES Karlstad choose to acknowledge this day regarding the fantastic Loyalty and Commitment our staff have in engaging all of our students both past and present in a terrific education at our school.

Teachers truly have an amazing profession to shape and guide individuals to be to the best possible they can be. Their dedication is deserving of recognition.

'Thank you teachers at IES Karlstad!'

Literacy time

Literacy time

We have implemented a new literacy program in year 4 and 5 this year. There is no evaluation just to encourage kids to read and write. There are always very engaged.

Peace day and language week recognition

Peace day and language week recognition

We are celebrating Peace day today and Language week. Therefore we have put up the Spanish and French flags to recognize the modern languages we have at our school. We truly have a diverse group of staff and students and the cultural exchange is amazing. One of our values at school is that everyone should feel safe and respected for who they are. Recognizing Peace day and celebrating language and culture is very important for us. Even our lunch menu this week has an extra cultural flavor. Thank you to all the students and staff for creating posters and speaking openly about this very important value. Go IES Karlstad!
