School update

Dear parents and students!

My name is Sara Stengård, Principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan Falun. I am happy to inform you that Internationella Engelska Skolan Falun will open in August 2014.

I am originally from Hedemora and an educated Swedish and so teacher. I started working for Internationella Engelska skolan in Gävle 2005 and the last years I have been working as Assistant Principal there. Now I am happy and excited to take on my new role as the Principal of IES Falun.

The builders have started working to make the School nice and fresh for our new students when the School year starts in August. The address is Trotzgatan 37c in Falun. I will update you regularly about the process via pictures and information on this site. The first year the building will be ready for five classes. A new, nice school yard and a gym hall will be built and you will find a dining area in the school building.  

I am now in the process of hiring competent and dedicated staff. In the School you will find both international and Swedish staff, everyone with the same goal, to create a calm and safe environment for our students, where teachers can teach and students can learn. You will soon be able to find more information here about staff signed up for the School.

As mentioned, we will start with 5 classes in August. I am now preparing to send out letters of invitation for our introduction day, which will be held on May 10th at Falu frigymnasiet, Nybrogatan 20 in Falun. Please contact me if you have any questions.
