In the municipality of Boden, we value lifelong learning of all pupils and children, build faith in the future and give them tools and conditions to influence their own future. In the municipality of Boden, there are both municipal and independent primary schools. You can wish which school your child should go to.
Primary education is an important part of Boden’s society and forms the basis for our future. Boden is a city with a proud history of military presence, but also a city that has changed and developed in many ways. Primary school is an important part of this development, giving students the opportunity to explore different interests and develop their knowledge and skills.
In Boden’s primary schools, students are encouraged to take advantage of all the great opportunities available in the city. It is a city with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a variety of job opportunities. Primary education provides students with a broad knowledge base and develops important skills that are crucial for success in society.
The International School of Boden, located just south of the arctic circle, educates students from the ages of 6 to 19. Our foundation is built on the need for an international community in the north of Sweden. With the growing number of international families moving to Boden, we have decided to match this demand with the opening of an International Education Program with internationally trained and experienced teachers to provide students with a high-quality worldwide curriculum that is transferable and recognized universally.
There are eleven F-6 (6 to 12 years) schools and two F-9 (6 to 15 years) schools in the municipality of Bodens. Year 6 to 12 is a time when the basic knowledge and skills are laid that will form a solid foundation for children’s further education and development.
During these years it is important to encourage children to take advantage of all the opportunities around them. They have the opportunity to learn about many different subjects, such as mathematics, Swedish, English, social studies and science. They also have the opportunity to explore creative subjects, such as music, art and drama, and to develop their creativity and self-expression.
But age 6 to 12 are not just about knowledge, they are also about developing social skills and learning to work with others. Children learn to be respectful of each other and to work together to achieve common goals. They also learn how to manage conflict and understand how to solve problems in a positive way.
As a parent or teacher, it is important to support children during these years and encourage them to believe in themselves and their abilities. By giving them positive feedback and acknowledging their progress, we help them develop a positive self-image and believe in their ability to succeed.
The municipality of Boden has two age 13 to 15 schools and two age 6 to 15 schools.
Age 13 to 15 are a time of change and challenge for many young people. It is a time when they are transitioning from being children to teenagers, and when they start preparing for the transition to secondary school and later the world of work.
During these years, students are challenged to take more responsibility for their own learning and development. They can choose courses in different subjects that interest them, giving them more freedom to create their own learning path. At the same time, they are challenged to cope with more advanced subjects and higher performance expectations.
In the Municipality of Boden, study and career guidance is given to all students in grades 7, 8 and 9. The guidance activities are different depending on the year the student is in. Study and career counselors guide and inform students and guardians individually and in groups about the students’ future study paths and professional life. The goal of the guidance activities is for the students to be able to make a well-founded choice for upper secondary school and prepare them for a future professional life. This is done by supporting, strengthening and sharing knowledge about the alternatives.
