Futuraskolan International Bergtorp offers Grade 6-9. Starting fall 2018 in Grade 6, the school will start the transition towards becoming a bilingual school. Fully implemented this means that our students’ lessons will be conducted approximately 50% in English and 50% in Swedish. We follow the Swedish National Curriculum and in addition we also utilize the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). With the IMYC, students are constantly developing and strengthening their skills as well as their knowledge and deeper understandings while broadening their world-wide perspective.
We also make sure that our teachers who work in English and Swedish have their working language as a native language. It is important that the students meet and use both languages daily in different everyday situations, not just during class time.
This helps us fulfill our vision of being “the best stepping stone for future world citizens.”
To complement our International Curriculum and to give students a more personalized learning experience Futuraskolan International Bergtorp offers three after school Enrichment programs:
In the Creative Arts program, students develop their talents in music and drama, sing in school choirs, participate in various concerts and in year 9 perform a musical where the students themselves have written the script and music.
New for 2020 – Dance in cooperation with Laisings Dance School for students entering grade 6.
In Global Citizenship program, we will work with focus on different areas of communication and societal development. Our aim is to give our students an opportunity to broaden their perspectives by looking into the world through various projects in the form of school collaborations and exchanges and other projects where we learn how people live their lives in other countries and how we can be an active participant in global improvement. Sustainable Development, Global Activism and Cross Cultural Exchange Programs are the core working components of this developmental approach.
