The Advantages of an ISB Education

There are as many reasons to take an IB education and joining the ISB community as there are students in our school. However, we would like to emphasise what in our opinion are some of the main advantages of being a student at ISB.

Ten aspects that make ISB an international school of choice:

  1. Every child is seen, heard and valued.

  2. We have a 1:7 teaching ratio and class sizes range from 15 to 22.

  3. Our student well-being team includes English language support teachers, school councelors and an individual needs support teacher.

  4. We follow the Norwegian language currciulum and each year our Norwegian national tests results exceed both national and local averages.

  5. Parents are partners in our children’s education.

  6. Our community embraces our diverse and inclusive student, teacher and parent body.

  7. We have 50 nationalities and we speak 45 different languages. Teachers’ nationalities also reflect our diverse student population.

  8. We intentionally plan for learning both inside the classroom and in the wider community.

  9. The arts are an important part of our curriculum, and all students have the opportunity to take part in our school plays.

  10. Our after-school activities programme includes chess, coding, art classes and robotics.
