Alzahraa Akademi/Bergholm School is an F-9 elementary school that has been operating since 1997 in Bagarmossen/Stockholm. The school is open for all and teaching follows the Swedish Education Act, the adopted curriculum and the associated course plans.

Here at Alzahraa Academy, we put students at the center and the school makes every effort to ensure that everyone develops on its own merits.

The language is in focus. We all agree in the Swedish language, and we place great emphasis on the children to learn their mother tongue. This promotes language learning and strengthens the children’s identity.

For us; it is also important that all children and adults feel comfortable with us. We have a dedicated staff with a very positive attitude and high expectations for students, which contribute to a good atmosphere and good development.

The school is located in Bagarmossen walking distance to Bagarmossen Tunnelbana(subway) and near the green area adjacent to Skarpnäcks green spaces and Nackareservatet with forests and lakes for outdoor activities. The good school environment is a source of inspiration for the students in order to experience our common world and gives our children and young people the sense of nature that characterizes the Swedish society.
