Oslo International School (OIS)  is an independent international day school for students from 3 to 19 years of age. The school was founded in 1963 and is located in a green suburban neighborhood of Oslo. Oslo International School provides an inclusive education for around 6oo students from approximately 5o nationalities.

OIS offers a curriculum that focuses on emphasizing cooperation and global awareness:

  • Our Pre-School (3-5 years) follows the English Early Years Foundation Stage and The International Primary Curriculum. The school also follows the Norwegian Rammeplan, or national framework for all Pre-Schools in Norway.
  • In the Primary curriculum (5-11 years) the core subjects are Literacy, Mathematics and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
  • The Lower Secondary Curriculum (11-15 years) is a school-based curriculum.
  • The Upper Secondary Programme (15-18 years) is a demanding 3-Year course of study (Pre-IB to IB2), with final examinations that prepare students for success at university and employment.

Oslo International School is organised as a not-for-profit educational trust, which is regulated by Norwegian law and requires a board to oversee its activities. The school fees are set to meet the school’s running costs and are reviewed annually by the Board.

The annual tuition fees for the academic year 2020-21 are 102.500 NOK for Pre-School and 224.000 NOK for Years 1 through IB2 (includes tuition and facility fee). More information about the complete schedule of fees, and OIS’s terms and conditions, can be found here.

Good academics, limited choice, not much creativity or sports

1.5/ 5

The teachers are dedicated and committed with a fairly good system for collaboration among teachers. The academic level is quite high though choice of subject in high school is limited, the creative arts are not a strong point and neither are sports nor extra curriculars. Literature, history, art tend to comprise white European/North American men. Teachers and administrators tend to be in Norway long term. Though this stability can be helpful, it means racial and other diversity, integration of anti-racism, change management, innovation, are not strong points. This is an international school strongly influenced by Norwegian culture and student body. School grounds are practical and utilitarian. Not much of a library. New High School building very nice. No theatre and meagre sports facilities. The school has good IB average partly because it filters admission to IB diploma years, partly because teachers seem highly dedicated. No school cafeteria. The grounds are air conditioned. Other international schools exist in Oslo and the Oslo region. Not all include high school. A new Director will start next school year. The school has been without a Director for three years.
