The Curriculum

The School's curriculum is governed by the Swedish National Agency for Education's goals and visions. The Curriculum (Lgr11) contains three parts:

1. Fundamental values and tasks of the school.
2. Overall goals and guidelines for education.
3. Syllabuses which are supplemented by knowledge requirements.

Please see the links to the National Curriculum for more detailed information and the film explaining the grading system.

 

The Grading Scale A to F
There are precise knowledge requirements that govern grades A, C and E.

For grades B and D the student needs to have met the knowledge requirements of the preceding grade in its entirety and, predominantly, met the knowledge requirements for the succeeding grade.

Grade F indicates the student has not met the subject goal requirement.

Grades are given in all subjects in Years 6 through 9 except language choice, which is graded from Year 7.

A term grade is given at the end of the Autumn and Spring terms. In the 9th year, a final grade is given at the end of the Spring term. The final grade is the basis for applying to upper secondary school.

 

National Tests in Year 3
There is a National test in mathematics.

National Tests in Year 6
There are National tests in English, mathematics and Swedish (only for students that have been in here for at least two years). In addition, one of physics, chemistry or biology and one of social studies, religious studies, history or geography.

National Tests in Year 9
There are National tests in English, mathematics, Swedish (only for students that have been in here for at least two years). In addition, one of physics, chemistry or biology and one of social studies, religious studies, history or geography.

The tests are an aid to the teacher in the assessment of student knowledge. They also support the teacher's grading and the results of the tests also provide a basis for analyzing and monitoring the results of the school.
