List of 10 Best Schools in Sweden (2020 Fees)

Sweden has one of the best education systems in the world. This is because the country’s education structure encourages learners to think independently, critically, and creatively. Moreover, the Swedish Education Act provides all children and youth free education in all public or state schools. The schooling system is divided into four levels, which include:

  • Preschool (förskola)
  • Compulsory schooling which is made up of Elementary school (lågstadiet), middle school (mellanstadiet) and junior high school (högstadiet).
  • Upper secondary school or senior high school (gymnasium)
  • Tertiary education

365体育投注平台In Sweden, education is compulsory from the age of seven to 16 years, according to the Swedish Education Act. Although not mandatory, most children between one to five years join preschool, in either private or public institutions. Once they reach seven years, they advance to elementary school, followed by middle school and later, junior high school. By law, children are expected to start school at age seven, but in some cases, they begin at age six or eight. Regardless of starting-age, children are required to attend mandatory schooling for nine years.

At the junior high school level, exceptional students may opt for advanced mathematics or sciences while others choose music, arts, or practical courses such as carpentry or electronics. Moreover, children with special needs can attend specialized facilities that adequately cater to their needs. When children complete this level, they receive a certificate and proceed to secondary or Junior High School. Besides, mainstream education, some schools focus on helping students harness their skills and talents, in sports among other talent-based activities.

Although upper secondary schooling or gymnasium is not compulsory, a majority of the youths in the country complete this level of education. After completing upper secondary education, the student gets to choose whether they want to progress to university level or pursue a career.
