Prästholmsskolan is a public school in Boden. The school is located in the city of Boden but also near the forests and a big lake.
Prästholmsskolan was built in 1974 and the building is on one floor. Now we have three classes in a separate building 100 meters from the other school. There we also have after school activities for the children. We have such activities in both buildings.
The school has two principals. One for the compulsory primary school for children from 7 to 11 years old and the class for all 6-year-olds in a preschool class. And one principal for the compulsory school for the learning disabled.
There is a good co-operation between the two of school forms.
The schools profile is ICT and culture. The pupils learn to handle computers directly when they begin, both with internet and pedagogical programs. In every classroom there is at least one computer but in the common area there are many computers and we have big screen TV/ computers in every classroom.
Culture in all form is like a natural part in the teaching, through music, dance, rhythm and creative. We also work much with lifestyle and health and sustainable development.
All children in Sweden have food for free in school.
