Student Choice

Years 3 to 5

Students have reinforced English in "Student Choice" at Red Mountain School because the school has an English-language profile. 30 minutes are taught a week in year 3 and 60 minutes in years 4 and 5.

Year 6

Students are in mixed groups and the lessons are sometimes in Swedish and sometimes in English. This gives the students opportunities to get to know new friends and thus have a chance to develop their English or Swedish. The subject material varies and often includes extracurricular subjects.

Years 7 to 9

Students have the lesson scheduled on Wednesday afternoons.
The aim of the subject is to give students the opportunity for specialization in elective subjects and teaching is conducted in both Swedish and English.

We have chosen to create approximately ten activities based on students' interests and teachers' expertise. Some choices are for exempel Math, Performing arts, Masterchef, Study help, PE and Designing. The students get to chooose 3 different choices a year. All pupils in years 7 to 9 select one of these activities. Student selection gives, therefore, a great opportunity to get to know students from other classes, whether one is in year 7, 8 or 9, or in a Swedish, English or bilingual class.

14 teachers are jointly responsible for these classes and there may be one or more teachers per group, depending on how many students choose each activity.The teachers for student choice groups are also teachers to some students (7-9)  in the school.
