Going to ISSR for 2 years had a horrible experience. My first year was absolutely had an awesome year but for my second year it was horrible. Not only the teachers were so mean and unfair, they put ALL of my friends in the other class. I really hated that year. And also getting email home for NOOOOOOOOOOO reason. Stupid! DO not recommend this school

Not a school that sees individuals or attends well to children who have needs. Reliant on the fact they have a queue. Some amazing teachers but they are not supported by the management team.

I'll be honest, the only thing that made this school good was my friends. The teachers were an extreme lottery - either they were great, or they were another level of awful. Certain teachers could be very petty or passive-aggressive, but especially the science and English teachers were very charismatic and helpful. The teachers don't communicate with each other, though, and there would often be 4 or 5 assignments all due on the same day and just generally a constant load of schoolwork. There is also a very competitive atmosphere, and a grade 6 is seen by most students as terrible (even though it's nowhere near bad), and the arts are given absolutely no importance with no option to be creative and learn new techniques. Absolutely nothing is done about student bullying, and some of the teachers honestly felt like bullies themselves. It just feels like they don't care very much about the students tbh.

The interaction with the admissions officer is impossible. It looks like they just want to throw some policy and admission criteria at you for not admitting or considering your application. They are not interested to understand a case and genuinely help.

It's alright I would say, definitely not great, the food isn't very good and some of the teachers aren't great.

Unarguably the best school in Stockholm. Except for the food, but I'd take that trade for the education and teachers you get there

fantastic school, way higher than standard schools, a little bit too small.
