- Investing in schools and education is one of the strategically most important steps that we can take to develop Sandviken municipality, says Ann-Katrin Sundelius, the municipality´s chief executive officer. In Sandviken´s pre-schools, compulsory schools and upper secondary schools (high schools) our aim is to ensure that every child and young person can influence his or her own situation and acquisition of knowledge.
Sandviken municipality has 20 compulsory schools, two of which are independent schools, 27 municipal pre-schools and 4 parent co-operative. In addition there are after-school recreation centres and other open activities. Some of the pre-schools and compulsory schools in Sandviken have their own special focus, nature, open air activities, equality, internationalization, sports and health.
