Good academics, limited choice, not much creativity or sports
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.
