The Swedish School East Bay began as Svenska Skolan i Walnut Creek over 25 years ago. We follow curriculum from the Swedish Educational Department for Swedish students abroad.
Our goal is to help the children maintain and advance their knowledge in the Swedish language and culture to prepare them to reside in Sweden for a shorter or longer period of time.
Students are divided into groups based on their age and/or knowledge of the Swedish language. Our goal is to meet the children where they are and guide them towards feeling even more confident in communicating in both spoken and written Swedish. We teach through short lectures, reading books, working in different workbooks, playing games, and much more.
Throughout the year we celebrate Lucia, Christmas, Fat Tuesday and the Waffle Day. We also participate in SUF-VM in October, go ice skating in April, and enjoy a traditional Swedish skolavslutning in June.
