The IB learner
Starting a
new school
Grades 1
through 10

We believe that the education provided at ISB should reflect the school’s core values, beliefs and objectives. Our international curriculum helps us shape the future with caring and confident citizens of the world.


Approximately 210 students are enrolled from more than 30 countries, with the larger representations being from the UK, USA, India and Norway.

The School

The International School of Bergen (ISB) was founded in 1975 and is a non-profit, co-educational day school, enrolling students in pre-school through upper school.


We are accepting applications ahead of our move to the new campus in August 2019. Please apply early as seats are filling fast.

The premises

The International School of Bergen moved to a newly renovated, forested campus in Sandslihaugen 30 in August 2019. We are enjoying this exciting new chapter in ISB's history and we wish to welcome new families to join our community. In addition to modern learning spaces throughout the building, we have focused on premium outdoor facilities to strengthen a holistic and balanced education.

  • So, another corridor shot, but this time from the new home of ISB, in Sandsli. What’s down this corridor? Well, there are MYP and PYP art studios, our brand-new, bespoke science laboratory and just around the corner is our OWN gym and performing arts studio. Welcome to your new ISB. Oh, and I’ve been told it’s always this sunny in Sandsli... 😉 (📸 Mr Joe) #internationaleducation #internationalbaccalaureate #bergen #norway #alwayssunnyinbergen
  • No longer reverberating to the sound of children’s laughter, the doors on ISB’s time at Sletten were finally closed today. Every stick of furniture has been removed, every book, pen and crayon. Every coat peg, blackboard, whiteboard and interactive display board. Thank you for all the memories, friends and lessons learned, but it’s time for a new chapter in ISB’s story. Onwards... 📸 Mr Joe #internationaleducation #internationalbaccalaureate #internationalschool #memories #goodbye
