The International School of the Gothenburg Region
The ISGR/IHGR is a K-12 school providing a safe, secure and dynamic, environment that prepares students for a successful future!
The International School of the Gothenburg Region, ISGR, was founded in 1997 with 184 students; to meet the needs of the growing number of expatriate families coming to Gothenburg requiring an International Education for their children.
In 2002, the International High School of the Gothenburg Region was developed and so today we offer the International Baccalaureate Programme alongside a National Program, taught in Swedish, and a Social Science and Natural Science programme taught in English to over 1,000 students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. In August 2008 we introduced the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and are, therefore, an IB world school offering the full IB continuum of learning with three programmes PYP K-5, MYP 6-10 and IBDP – 11 & 12.
Although we offer several different programmes we see ourselves as one school. The students participate jointly in many events throughout the year such as the Nordic Network sports competition and also serving on the Student Council. The students at ISGR/IHGR represent over 60 different nationalities. For more information about the IB Programme please visit their website at www.ibo.org.
We have two campuses for our school, Guldheden houses our Elementary school grades K – 5 and the more centrally located Molinsgatan houses students from grade 6 – 10. IHGR is also located at our Molinsgatan Campus. Our teachers are drawn from all over the world and share an enthusiasm and special interest in international education.
ISGR constantly strives to improve as demonstrated by our achieving the Council of International Schools Accreditation in 2008. Our commitment to this ongoing process ensures that our organisation will continue to develop positively.
The school is owned by the Gothenburg Region Association of Municipalities, GR and consists of the municipalities of Mölndal, Partille, Lerum, Kungsbacka, Kungälv, Öckerö, Stenungsund, Tjörn, Alingsås, Härryda, Ale, Lilla Edet and Göteborg. We firmly believe in partnerships, bringing together the whole school community including our staff members, students, parents, the Boards of ISGR and IHGR and our Corporate Group. Together we will succeed in becoming the best that we can be.
