The Swedish School in Marbella opened in 2003 and is today located in an urban area called La Alzambra, complete with a spacious garden, a pool, a football field and a playground. Here, everyone will know your name and every child can get what they need. “Our smallness is our greatness,” says headmaster Fredrik Ternander. We have capacity for 150 children and today we have 120, but this spring we will likely fill the school,” Ternander says and continues: “We can follow every child individually. We know the parents and meet them every day, so we always have the possibility to talk to them.”
