Swedish school without classrooms

Pupils in Telefonplan school in Stockholm

The Telefonplan School in Stockholm has taken a radically new approach to education that involves doing away with classrooms and grades and pioneering a system where students learn in groups at their level, not necessarily by age. The architect behind this school, Rosan Bosch, designed the school so children could work independently in open-spaces while lounging, or go to “the village” to work on group-projects.

Telefonplan is part of a network of 30 schools, and offers free admission to the school, as long as the child has a personal number (like a social security number) and one of the child’s parents is a Swedish tax payer.
