About Scandinavian School of Madrid


Scandinavian School of Madrid offers programs of Early Childhood Education (from two years old), Compulsory Education (EP and ESO) and Sixth Form (Bachillerato). We have a Scandinavian and International section, both based on Scandinavian pedagogy and values. The Scandinavian section is taught in Swedish and follows the Swedish curriculum.

Students in the International section follow the Cambridge programme. The philosophy of Scandinavian education is based on the idea that each child is a complete human being, deserving equal attention and respect and at the same time guidance, advice and examples to help the child fully develop his/her potential in a safe and stable environment where the child is encouraged to learn from mistakes.

Best school in Madrid! I don't think there is any other place in the city like this. Teachers, students, and parents are so happy. My kid feels at home.

The children go happy to the school. Kids learn responsibility and respect to teacher and each other naturally. Parents are always welcome to come around.

Nice green areas. Infrastructure for sports, arts, and science suffers somewhat from limited space and funds, but is after big recent renovations now sufficient. The focus on music and performing arts is working great. The teachers find the (sometimes hidden) skills in every kid, it is amazing! The school is also well equipped with instruments and related items. However, facilities for other arts and craft are very limited (again limited space and funding), but suffice to follow curriculum. The school has two sections; a Scandinavian and an international. I can only speak for the Scandinavian. Teachers are good and work with small groups. The kids really enjoy going to school and from what I can judge they also learn well. The atmosphere between the kids is very good. We have had our kids in this school for several years now and will continue.

I'm so happy and motivated in this school as a teacher. I was constantly impressed by the professionalism and dedication of the teaching staff. The small class sizes allows for individualized instruction and most students receive personal attention and help from each teacher if they need it. The Scandinavian methodology is unique and fantastic. I recommend this experience to anyone and at any age... Come and meet us!

El mejor cuidado y educación para los más pequeños. Atención personalizada con 2 profesores para aprox.10-12 niñ@s donde aprender desde el respeto, con valores y divirtiéndose es fundamental.

Mis hijos de 6 y 12 años, llevan desde los 3 años en el cole y van felices. El colegio es pequeño y eso favorece un ambiente familiar y cercano con los profesores. La educación escandinava incentiva la autoestima y la empatía. También nos gustó por la importancia que se le da a la música. Además es totalmente en inglés en la rama internacional, con la posibilidad de aprender otros idiomas como sueco, francés o alemán.

i wish I had been at this school as a child. My son is there and it is the most welcoming, warm and caring school I have seen. It s a fantastic learning environment based on positive and inclusive approach. My child loves the school and can't wait to go back after each holiday. The classes are small, and the teachers are strong and very close to the pupils. The headmaster is excellent and the spirit of the school is very wholesome and forward looking. No need to trust reviews, just go and visit the school yourself on an open day. You'll see the difference right away.

The atmosphere in the school is really good. The Open mind and critical thinking is clearly an asset. The arts and music have special attention in the school, which complements the good level of Maths and science. I would say this school is a nice place for kids where learning become a funny and interesting task for pupils. The school is caring about the whole education, not only about the academic contents but also the person as anunique and different Human Being.
