Choosing a school (English)
Choosing a school
Hello legal guardians!
Did you know that as the legal guardian of your child, you have the right to choose which school you would like your child to attend?
Now is the time to apply to municipal compulsory schools for the autumn. All children will be able to attend a school near to their home but there is no guarantee it will be the closest school.
You can apply to municipal compulsory schools using our e-service. If you want your child to go to Montessori Luleå, you can choose it as an alternative in the e-service. If you want your child to attend an independent school within the municipality, you must contact that school yourself.
Who can choose?
- Legal guardians of children who are going to start preschool class in the autumn and want a school other than their allocated school.
- Legal guardians of children who are currently in a school where the next year (year 4 or year 7) is not available and who want a school other than their allocated school.
PLEASE NOTE! You do not have to make a choice if you want your child to start attending their allocated school.
What does “allocated school” mean?
Luleå municipality is divided up into areas, each with its own school. The Montessori school is an exception; it has the entire municipality of Luleå as its area. The child's registered address determines which school the child is allocated.
More information about choosing schools, applying for a place at an after-school centre, and which school your child has been allocated can be found at www.lulea.se/valjaskola External link.
Application period 15 January to 15 February. Apply using e-identification at www.lulea.se/valjaskola External link.
Legal guardians who do not have e-identification or who have protected personal data must contact Kundcenter to make their application.
Did you know that it is also possible to apply to a school that specialises in one of the following subjects?
- Finnish, Meänkieli, Sami
