Sweden – Vaggeryd
Fenix Kultur - och Kunskapscentrum
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. We think that our school is good because it has a lot of internship and field studies and also international exchanges which are good because it gives us students the opportunity to build relationships and experiences that can facilitate the transition to work.
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.
