About IHGR

IHGR is the small school in the heart of Gothenburg. Our aim is that each and everyone of our students should strive to reach their academic potential and do so in an atmosphere of respect and understanding.

We have a broad mix of nationalities, cultures and personalities within our student population and faculty. All tuition is in English but in our hallways you will hear languages from all over the World: French, Italian, Farsi, Mandarin, Arabic, Russian and many others.

At IHGR we are altogether 350 students and 30 staff. We offer the Social Science Programme, The Social Science Programme Pace, the Natural Science Programme and the IB Diploma Programme. Together we represent almost sixty nationalities, something that ensures a truly international atmosphere.

We aim to educate young, independent and knowledgeable world citizens, who strive to continue their academic studies and/or professional careers internationally. At IHGR knowledge is highly regarded, as well as honesty and critical thinking. We are convinced that presence in class is a prerequisite for academic success.

Our teachers often work with projects and the syllabi encourage independent studies, all to prepare the students for university. The students should be encouraged to participate in and influence decision making regarding their education.

We have a number of exciting exchange programmes, with for instance France, Spain, Hungary, Denmark and Uganda. Every year, students travel to Great Britain to visit universities. On a weekly basis, our many clubs and societies challenge, develop and entertain our students in areas such as debating, community service, human rights, school newspaper, dancing, and football.
IHGR is also very active in the European Youth Parliament.
