    International School Opens Children’s Eyes



    Studying at Stockholm's oldest international school gives children not only a rigorous academic education, but also a unique understanding of other cultures.
    "If adults could treat each other as the students do, we would have no more wars," says Rune Svaninger, Director of Stockholm International School.

    As I arrived at the attractive school building in central Stockholm, the children were just coming in from their morning break. Laughing and playing as they ran up the stairs, kids of every ethnicity were milling about on their way back to their classrooms.

    Stockholm International School educates 550 students from over 50 different countries. From the United States to Uzbekistan, from Sweden to Singapore.
    "We usually say that this is like a miniature United Nations," says Rune Svaninger, now in his third year as the school's Director.

    He describes one of the school's most cherished traditions. Every year on October 24, Stockholm International School celebrates UN Day (see video below). All the students, some in national costume, line up by nationality, and waving their respective flags set off on a colourful parade around the park just across the street.
    "It's just a fantastic event," he says.

    Stockholm International School receives children between the ages of three and 19. From its humble beginnings as a small kindergarten class, over half a century ago, to today's internationally accredited school.

    This term sees the school celebrating its 60th anniversary, making it the oldest International school in Scandinavia.

    The school, a non-profit foundation, is an authorised member of the most popular international programmes, from the lower grades' International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme, all the way through the challenging IB Diploma Programme for high school students.

    Becoming a member school of these programmes is tough to say the least, as the rigorous authorisation process demands its fair share of both work and resources. The reward is an unbeatable seal of quality.

    "We send all our teachers on workshops at least every third year," explains Svaninger.

    Following these programmes also means that Stockholm International School can offer students a high level of consistency in their learning.

    "Students can finish here on a Friday, and start in New Delhi, Cape Town, Seattle or Buenos Aires on the Monday, in the same programme," explains Rune Svaninger.

    He emphasizes that Stockholm International School is unique among Stockholm schools, as the only truly international school. Although there are some other schools that offer tuition in English, these either follow the Swedish curriculum or do not cater for students for the whole of their school careers.

    "I think one of our biggest strengths is that we just follow the international programmes. We have nothing to do with the Swedish curriculum."

    Although Stockholm International School's student numbers are at an all-time high, with just 550 students the school continues to be fairly small.

    "Students can't hide, and students can't not be seen. They get the attention they need," explains the Secondary School Principal Kevin Munro. He believes a better learning environment is created through the small school size and, not least, the uniquely small class sizes.

    At Stockholm International School, classes are never larger than 20 pupils, and often much smaller. This allows the qualified and international teaching staff to give their students that extra bit of attention that makes all the difference.

    Going the extra mile can be done in any number of ways. At Stockholm International School, it means students are taken on school trips to discover and learn more about Sweden, from grade six and up. It also means offering students after-school activities that range from orchestra to swimming practice with English instruction, and having one of Stockholm's best learning support departments, with particular emphasis placed on teaching English as an additional language.

    The majority of Stockholm International School's students come from diplomatic families, or have parents that have taken jobs in the Stockholm offices of major corporations. With such highly mobile students, often recently arrived in the country, much of the school's work goes beyond the academic, and looks to make sure entire families feel integrated in the community as quickly as possible.

    “The staff at school work with students both academically and socially. Transitioning to a new school in a new country comes with some difficulties. We know about these issues and work together with parents to help students settle in” says Kevin Munro.

    He believes that the uniquely global environment offered by Stockholm International School is an asset for both children's learning experience and for understanding different cultures.

    "It definitely adds a wider perspective for kids to draw experiences from. I think it does give them a richness of understanding, not only of themselves and their culture, but of other cultures."

    So why do we have to nurture other nationalites?

    We are killing our kind and helping others to remain on earth.

    The school is liberal.

    It's all about indoctrinating kids to be globalists. European children come from the most advanced society on Earth, which has produced the most advanced culture on Earth. If you stunt their development within THEIR OWN culture and encourage them to look at alien cultures as somehow something better for them to follow, you are destroying that European culture at its roots.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    The madness of 'multiculturalism' is that it ignores the host culture in favour of the much vaunted, but spurious 'contributions' of latter arrivals.

    If what the article preaches is true, how come Norwegians are moving their kids to "whiter" schools around Oslo?
    Please don't confuse the terms "nordid" and "nordic".

    Studying at Stockholm's oldest international school gives children not only a rigorous academic education, but also a unique understanding of other cultures.
    Because interacting with a select sample of young children gives a good understanding of their culture? And how much will these children learn about their own culture and will that understanding be as good as that of other cultures?

    "If adults could treat each other as the students do, we would have no more wars," says Rune Svaninger, Director of Stockholm International School.

    (...)

    "Students can't hide, and students can't not be seen. They get the attention they need," explains the Secondary School Principal Kevin Munro. He believes a better learning environment is created through the small school size and, not least, the uniquely small class sizes.
    Small classes that can be better monitored. That might be the real reasons for the apparent lack of problems between the pupils of different cultural and racial backgrounds. In other words it has little to nothing to do with so called unique understanding of other cultures as with a near complete oversight by the teachers. And creating classes so small, that are no groups; only individuals.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    "If adults could treat each other as the students do, we would have no more wars," says Rune Svaninger, Director of Stockholm International School.
    This is a typical statement you always see being made by utterly airheaded (and almost always female) lefties. The media always repeats it as though it is worth the keystrokes to deliver it to the world. "Oh the little children all play in the sandbox regardless of race.. we could learn so much from them!"

    So why are children not allowed to vote? Why are children not allowed to drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes? Why are children not allowed to consent to sex? Because they don't have the experience in life to make educated choices about such things! Yet, these social liberal fools think that somehow these same children are wiser than we are in this particular social situation! Only a person who thinks with her emotions would find this point of view to make any sense whatsoever.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    I have first hand account on this, experiening thus excat problem. I'm witnessing this for the last 10 years.

    white europeans, in general, do not wish or want to be socialated with any foreigners nor be apart of any such communities.
    Newer suburbs always consists of whites while older suburbs are inhabited by non-whites. It's a pattern that whites are escaping the ghettos. Since whites have no rights to act, whites simply, pack up and leave.

    We all know, the good in us won't rub off on them,but,migrants badness always seems to be he dominate trait, making whites scatter. Not only that, whites quite simply wished to be around our own kind.

    Liberals don't care want we want, or even want the migrants want. Liberals only care for thier multiracial all light medium brown population that obeys the globalised ways. And that is, one governent , one race!

    What one learns in one's school years has a lasting effect throughout one's life. This is a way to indoctrinate the children early, to attenuate the connection to their own culture forever. It's very sad.

    mmmh. I guess if everybody would have been as naive and silly as Rune Svaninger, we already would have a one-world-government.
    What poor Rune forgets that the majority of these kids does neither have the experiences of a grown-up nor are they under the same conflict-of-interest pressure then most grown ups, where they do have to make tough decisions with scarce resources having long term implications. The kids do also look as if they are on some kind of drug.

    I guess we all can be nice in Lalaland.
