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 accept applications all year around. Please send in an application and we will get back to you shortly.

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.
