Prästholmsskolan is located in the lower part of Boden, about 100 meters from the beautiful Brännastrand in the center of Boden. The outdoor environment is beautiful and consists of grassy areas, playgrounds, play structures to provide good opportunities for play.

Our school is divided into three buildings, the main building, the Prinsenhuset and a building with sports, woodwork and a restaurant. The buildings are adjacent to each other. Prästholmsskolan is an age 6 to 12 school with a primary and special needs school integrated into the buildings.

It brings together different experiences and knowledge to shape ideas and thoughts about the future. The school’s work is characterized by a language development approach where teachers use genre pedagogy as a method. Learning from each other in a multicultural context is a great asset in our school. Vernissage, Open House and concerts are windows to showcase some of the students’ work. The internal school environment and a strong pedagogical commitment are good conditions for learning.
