A well-honed process
Nordic International School has a well developed quality process in place, which we use to regularly measure and evaluate perceived satisfaction and learning outcomes. Through the use of comprehensive surveys and joint seminars, we analyse what our students, guardians and employees think about our operations. Each school assesses satisfaction and perceived quality levels on the basis of survey results at a school level.
We also have joint meetings where all our principals come together to review the year’s results, exchange experiences and learn from one another. In all our quality work we ensure that we learn from the schools that have best succeeded within certain areas and we work constantly to spread this knowledge across the other schools.
Our analysis work then culminates in an operational plan for the coming year which clarifies the most important priorities for each school and for the company as a whole.
The experienced satisfiction in students and caregivers are measured in our yearly intern quality survey and in Skolinspektionens national school survey which they performs along caregivers and students in selected years.
Learning outcomes are monitored through a process in which we analyse grades, results in national tests and knowledge progression at several points throughout the year. The purpose of this process is to check that students have acquired the knowledge they need, and to ensure that the grades awarded are fair and correct.
An important part of our quality work consists of setting targets and following up performance across the different schools. The following targets apply to all our primary and lower-secondary schools:
- All students shall meet the learning objectives in all subjects as well as obtain the necessary pre-requisites to reach their full potential.
- All students shall meet the requirements for entry into upper-secondary school.
- All schools shall produce the highest average Year 9 points score in their respective municipalities, and shall monitor the correlation between results on national tests and school grades.
All schools shall actively influence and stimulate students to embrace our society’s common values, and allow them to be expressed through practical, everyday actions in order to meet the objectives stipulated in the national curriculum.
