End of term letter from the Principal, June 2020

Dear students, parents and staff,


As we start the summer holidays and reflect on the school year that has been, I want to take the time to say thank you for all of your dedication and grit during the last twelve months.  The 2020 winter/spring term has been truly challenging and memorable.  Your positive attitude as well as willingness to support each other has been an inspiration to have been a part of.  


IESN has continued to achieve academically and socially.  The graduating year level will leave with the best overall achievement levels in the history of IES Nacka.  The staff and students have cooperated, collaborated, and pushed each other to accomplish amazing things.  We are all extremely proud of them.


The student council, after school programs / clubs, dedicated staff, student care team and administration have created a safe and caring environment for all the students and staff to work in every day.  So much time, energy and perseverance are involved in ensuring that IES Nacka is a place where everyone can belong.  


We continue the process of  renovating the entire school and look forward to August and the opening of the new kitchen, lunchroom and student area on floor 10.  The renovation on floors 6, 7 and 8 will continue in the autumn term with the goal of completion by January 2021.  

We at IES Nacka wish you a safe summer of 2020.  We are looking forward to welcome you back on the 17th of August 2020!

Welcome back to school Autumn 2019

Dear parents, students and staff,

We are all excited to start the tenth year of Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka.  We have many accomplishments to be proud of as well as goals to achieve in this coming school year.

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the IESN staff and the students of the graduating Year 9 class of 2019 for the amazing work done to achieve a grade point average (meritvärde) of 291 points.  The Year Level 9 results of earning a C or higher in the national tests was outstanding: English 100%, Math 64%, Swedish 82%, Biology 92%, and Geography 92%. These are absolutely superb results and we are extremely proud of their hard work and dedication. 

A couple academic focuses for the school year are Social Science seminars from Year Level 4-9, continuing the implementation of increased time for Swedish (Year Levels 4-6) and an increase of one hundred hours of math that will include co-teaching (Year Levels 4,5,7, and 8) as well as three teachers for two classes in Year Levels 6 & 9.  Physical Education and Health has also increased by 100 hours. We have been creating new curriculum and you will see this in your children’s schedules as P.E. theory classes. Lastly, as we develop this school year the staff will also be updating all the unit sites for each subject taught at IESN. This will help us improve in our planning and educational achievement. 

We will have over thirty Mother Tongue languages and new company (Omniglot), delivering the services on Monday and Thursday mornings, starting week 37.

We have some new staff starting as well as returning staff that have changed positions at IES Nacka. Please take future opportunities to say hello to our new assistant principal, academic coordinator, nurse, counselors, school assistants, and teachers.  We are truly looking forward to everyone getting to know them and them joining our team.

Here at IES Nacka we have been improving the building with the painting of the walls, installing new sound absorbing photos, new play equipment and all new artificial grass on the play areas.  We will continue to do all we can to create and maintain a beautiful environment to work, play and develop together.

The SPT’s have been a time for all of us to get to know our new mentors and teachers.  The students have been demonstrating their growth mindset in setting goals and looking for the best ways to have a positive and happy 2019-20 school year.  As always please get involved at the school by being student council members, food council members, class parent representatives and volunteering to take part in different activities happening at the school. 

As we settle into the beginning of a new Autumn term I want to thank everyone for making this a positive and exciting start at Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka and we are looking forward to many new events, learning moments and letting you in on all the things happening this school year.

End of school year 2019

Dear students, parents and staff,

The end of the school year is fast approaching and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your wonderful effort and support for Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka.  As always, we continue to strive in our academic development and in our desire to improve our professional and personal relationships.

Professionally, IES Nacka is cooperating with Nacka municipality with (SSPF) Skola Socialtjänst Polis Fritidsverksamhet, Barn och Ungdoms focus as well as Nacka teacher training (VFU) program.  We have brought in the fire department to train all students on fire safety and improved the security of the school building. The cooperation between the school and parents is continuously improving.  Activities to raise money with Giving People, trips to amusement parks, museums, as well as organizing visits from educational institutions. The IES Nacka student council has been more active than ever before.  The improvements to the school environment and efforts in the food council have been greatly appreciated. Personally, our staff and students have displayed an openness, kindness and willingness to include others that is lovely to witness and be a part of.  The school leadership are truly thankful for all the participation of our families, community, staff and students at IES Nacka.

Academically the development continues at our school with brilliant national test results and individual achievement.  The Year Level 9 students have achieved the highest grade point average in the schools history and eight students have earned 340 points.  We have diversified our learning with the creation of Project week. Twenty-one different multi-year level (4-7) teams created amazing projects during week twelve, with a final day of displaying their work for parents to come and take part in.  The creativity and resourcefulness was great to see. Lastly, we want to mention the dedication of our school assistants in conducting inspiring competitions, craft projects, and joyful events for junior club as well as driving the reading initiative for Year Levels 4-6. It has been a brilliant success and we are encouraged by so many avid readers using the library facilities during the school year.

We at IES Nacka wish you a relaxing and peaceful summer of 2019.  Please remember the first day of school for 2019-20 will be Thursday the 15th of August.

Best regards,

Donald Christian
