Internationella Engelska Skolan offers a unique learning experience, where both English and Swedish are taught and spoken to ensure students are bilingual at the end of Grade 9. IES Kista is a global community focusing on excellence in all areas. 41 Languages are taught as home languages and we have 47 languages spoken across the student body. Our teaching staff hail from 15 different countries.
We are proud to announce that IES Kista will be expanding once again in the 2017 – 2018 academic year. We continue to be the school of choice in the greater community with students from 12 different municipalities enrolled. The majority of our students come from Kista, Spånga, Skärholmen, Sollentuna and Järfälla. Demand for places at our school continues to increase and as of today we have over 4500 students waiting for a place, with 1500 new applicants joining in the last 10 months. For this reason, in August 2017, we have decided to expand the school from 25 classes and 770 students to 30 classes and 900 students.
Our diverse staff reflects global excellence. With the expansion of our school community, we will be recruiting experienced teachers to join our diverse team of Swedish and international staff from 15 different countries. Our global recruitment drive intends to attract 16 new members of staff.
