Most of the other videos are a little old now but they do give you an insight into the Rödaberg spirit.


Rödabergsskolan is a municipal school with a special assignment to provide education in English for children living in Sweden for a limited period of time (3 years).

The education follows the Swedish curriculum. There are no fees or queue.

We do not have preschool, preschool class (F-class) or year 1 at Rödabergsskolan in the English section

All subjects are taught in English. We have only one class for years 2 to 9.

Swedish is taught from year 2. Year 7 to 9, it is taught for the same amount of time as in the Swedish section.

You can be one year younger than your peers in your class, except in year 2.

To be eligible, the student's level of English must be good enough to follow lessons and assignments.

School starts around mid- August and ends around mid-June the following year.
