Our school opened in August 2013 in the newly renovated premises at Storsätragärnd 8 in Skärholmen not far from Skärholmen Centrum. We started with about 450 students and now we have approximately 700 students in grades 4-9 with four parallel classes. Academics are not our only focus. We strive to provide excellent pastoral care. To that end, we run a “House” system (Sahara, Atlantic, Amazon and Everest). Each child belongs to a House and this helps strengthen the sense of community in the school. IES Skärholmen aims to dvelop open-minded global citzens who actively engage in their community both within and outside school. Through kindness and generosity we, as a learning community, strive to enrich our environment through education and understanding.
