Every year we look for exchange students and teaching assistants who are interested in attending our school.
Our first international project was launched in 1989 and along the years we have co-operated with schools in Estonia, France , Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland and Spain. Our school offers courses in English, Swedish, French, German, Spanish and Russian. Our international projects vary annually.
