Principal

Presentation

My name is Jan Liljegren, and I am the principal of this school. I am confident enough to claim that I have the most enjoyable and exciting job in the world. No day is quite like the next – this wonderful school is exuberated with constant activity, warmth and progress. I have had the privilege to have been here ever since the school opened in 1999, and am enormously proud of what we, together, have accomplished with Täby Enskilda. If I were to summarise our development in a few words, they would be: From an outsider to an example to others.

Why should you choose Täby Enskilda?

Täby and Danderyd have good schools, generally speaking. If you choose a school here it will never be a completely disastrous choice. But, it can obviously be more or less right. Täby Enskilda is a school big enough to be dynamic, but not too big that it becomes and anonymous factory. We have the most satisfied students, the highest student achievements and the highest comfort level. These are facts from Skolverket and Gymnasieantagningen. Moreover – and most importantly – our teachers are something very special, in a league of their own.

What am I most content with?

The schools culture which is to distinctly characterised by our vision, Passion for learning. I am of the firm conviction that we have to deserve our students, every day. That we, in every meeting with every student, have to do everything to reach, challenge and enrich every individual, with respect and fascination. That is why we are here. We are here for the students – not the other way round. My opinion is that THIS is very apparent at Täby Enskilda.
