Happy 15th Birthday IESJ

Happy Birthday to all of us at Internationella Engelska Skolan Järfälla!

Yesterday Internationella Engelska Skolan Järfälla celebrated its 15th anniversary out on the school yard. We mingled, got a surprise visit from the ice-cream truck and took group pictures of us all to hang on our "wall of fame".

Our school has grown into a well known, respected and cherished establishment in Järfälla and we are proud of what we have accomplished in the 15 years we have been here. Over 1600 students have graduated from IESJ and we are so grateful for all the support we have received from their families and the community throughout the years.

We are now planning for, and looking forward to, the next 15 years. Our promise to the community stays the same; we will provide a calm and safe environment where teachers teach and students learn, set high academic standards and give our students command of the English language. 

Towards the future, 

/Mrs Viljosson, Principal 



Rebuild of school playground

Preparations are now on the way for the rebuild of our school playground. 

The municipality has contractors on the way and we hope the project will start this fall.

When the rebuild is finished we will have a brand new playground with a parcour court, trampolines and swings.

Busy season

So much is going on at the school right now and the entire building is just buzzing with activity. Our yr 5’s have caterpillars waiting to transform into butterflies, Yr 6 (and 9) are writing their national tests, Yr 7 have started final preparations for their upcoming trip to Åland, Yr 8 plan and cook “Master Chef” meals for us to enjoy and Yr 9 make the most of their last few months here at our school.

This time of the year is also the time when we see a lot of extracurricular activities taking place, like the PTA gala, Spirit Days, IESJ World Cup to name but a few. It is extra important in this busy season to remember to not only work hard but also to take time to celebrate our growth and success.


As always it is a privilege to be principal of this outstanding school and I look forward to celebrating each student’s growth and development at the end of this academic year.

Vår medarbetare Mrs Edelswärd gjorde under hösten en studieresa till Uganda. Hon besökte myndigheter för att få kunskap om olika projekt som pågår, som till exempel återplantering av regnskog. Mrs Edelswärd besökte även en skola där hon fick chans att undervisa och samtala om utbildningsfrågor. Ytterligare besök gjordes i byar och nationalparker.

Under våren har hon haft föreläsningar för våra klasser för att informera och dela med sig om sina upplevelser i Uganda. (För fler bilder se Gallery under fliken Livet i skolan). 

Mrs Edelswärd one of our mentors made a study trip to Uganda during the autumn. She visited the authorities to gain knowledge about various projects in progress, such as reforestation of rainforest. Mrs Edelswärd also visited a school where she was given the opportunity to teach and talk about education issues. Further visits were made in villages and national parks.

During the spring, she has lectured our classes to inform and share her experiences in Uganda. ( For more pictures click on the school life tab and choose Gallery).
