Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
Klettaskóli is a special primary school serving the entire country. It was established in 2011. Klettaskóli replaces the previous specialized schools, Safamýrarskóli and Öskjuhlíðaskóli. Reykjavík City operates the school, and most of its students live in Reykjavík and surrounding municipalities.
The municipalities where students reside fund the schooling for students who live outside of Reykjavík. A participation class from Klettaskóli is located in Árbæjarskóli. A participation class is a specialized learning resource provided by Klettaskóli and located within a public primary school.
One of the school's roles is advising teaching staff from other primary schools and providing pedagogical support for students with similar educational needs to those in Klettaskóli.
You apply to enroll at Klettaskóli online. The application must be accompanied by diagnosis and reports from the student's preschool or primary school as applicable. Please note that an application must be submitted to the school by March 1 of each year.
Here is the school calendar for Klettaskóli. The school calendar lists the planning days as well as other important information for parents and guardians.
Most primary school students take part in the lunch program. The cost of school meals is the same at all schools. And, you do not need to pay for school lunch for more than two children from the same household. Here, you can see what's on offer in the cafeteria of Klettaskóli.
The Act on the Integration of Services in the Interest of Children’s Prosperity has come into effect. The goal is to ensure children and guardians receive the right assistance, at the right time, from the right parties. Families and children in need of early support have guaranteed access to a contact person in the child's immediate environment, such as in preschool or primary school. The contact person offers information and guidance on services and ensures that children and guardians have unhindered access to these services. Children, youth, and guardians can contact the school contact person to request integrated services.
