Fenix is a school that´s located in the southern Sweden in Vaggeryd. It has about 300 students and we have 16 different programs to choose between and they are college preparatory and vocational programs.

Here in Sweden we get food for free in the school because the citizens pay taxes for that and the upper high school is not compulsory for anybody.

Our school consists of two buildings. The main building and “Fenix 2”. The main building was built in 1996 and the second building was built in 2010. The second building is very modern and it has nice views of the nature and the big lake Hjortsjön.

There are students from different socio-economic backgrounds, a small number of them with foreign background, mostly Albanians. School is housed at a modern building in a fenced 15 acres area with a lot of greenery.

To do the training of our school more attractive and efficient for students, we have digitized part of lessons in the e-learning platform Moodle. Teachers upload their course materials (resources and activities) there. Their work has been made easier because they can teach without textbooks, having control over the study time for each student and taking the students’ exercises online (e-portfolios).

Another step in the process of digital transition of our school is the use of Lego Mindstorms robotics kits and the gradual use of them in various scientific fields. Since 2016, we have been implementing Erasmus+ KA2 projects in various fields related to Maths in real-life, Robotics with Python & Lego EV3, Physical Education, Accessible Tourism, Emotional Intelligence and Smart Innovation Technologies for school.
