Description of school

Borgsmoskolan is situated between Klockaretorpet och Skarphagen at the western entrance to the city of Norrköping close to the forest and the Borgsmo stadium. Most of the students are from the area of Klockaretorpet and the schools Tamburinen and Klockartorpsskolan. Borgsmoskolan has about 220 students between 13 and 16 years old. Each year the students choose between the different profiles (robots, food and health, basic subjects, arts, sports, reading and maths, entrepreneur).

There are two international classes for newly arrived students and one for students with disabilities as autism. One class works with the Montessori pedagogy and all students has a computer.
