What to expect from Mälardalen International School

Critical thinking

Our students are encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems.

A global mindset

We encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts.

Cultural awareness

Your child will develop multilingual skills and become more culturally aware through the development of a second language.

A global network of friends

Our students are able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.

English is a world language and our school´s internal working language. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or fluent in English you will learn a lot more. At MISV students will also learn the basics of the Swedish language and culture.

We value the hard-earned reputation for quality, for high standards and for pedagogical leadership. We achieve our goals by working with  our fantastic teachers.

Together with our partners Northvolt and Hitachi we promote intercultural understanding and respect, not as an alternative to a sense of cultural and national identity, but as an essential part of life in the 21st century.

Our aim is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

We encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

When we talk about education and what it means, what we really want to know is how to instil in our students the knowledge that will make them better learners and better people. How can we be sure that we send them off into life with the skills they really need to grow and develop in a successful, happy way?
