The Swedish School was founded in 1946 and the School has more than 71 years of experience, international education in a foreign environment.
When the school started there were many development projects led by SIDA in Ethiopia, different Swedish companies and missionaries who needed a school for the children. Until about 2010, the school had a strictly Swedish profile for education, using the Swedish curriculum and language as the mode of instruction. This year, we are working to finalize the transition to an international curriculum and inclusive school.
Today the school offers Preschool, Primary and Lower Secondary and has around 200 children ranging from 3 to 15 years old. An increasing number of students are children to diaspora and other international families. Over 30 nationalities are represented in our family.
