Welcome to the International School of Bergen, an IB World School nestled amid the beautiful mountains, lakes, fjords and forests of Bergen in southwestern Norway.

Founded in 1975, our school's experienced IB educators take pride in continuing a tradition of service to international and local families and businesses in the Bergen community. Celebrating over 26 years of IB MYP learning and teaching, ISB was the first school in the world to be authorized with this prestigious programme.

2019-2020 marked the next chapter in ISB’s history as we opened the year at our new school on a forest edge in Sandsli, a short walk from the Bybane – Bergen’s modern and convenient light rail system.

Our modern campus takes full advantage of the natural surrounds with walkways, huts and gardens designed to inspire connections with nature. A large selection of modern playground equipment suitable for all ages together with creatively developed conversation areas aim to immerse students in physical and social activities.

Purposeful design optimizes learning, and therefore, we are pleased to provide open and bright classrooms, aesthetically pleasing common areas and library, a fully equipped science laboratory, design, art and performance studios as well as a large cafeteria.

An education experienced in relevant situations adds meaning and strength to academic, social and physical pursuits. The holistic, learner-centered approach of the International Baccalaureate curriculum provides students the knowledge, skills and habits needed to thrive in school, beyond school and around the world.

Our shared values of community, integrity, respect, and responsibility are infused into our daily activities inside and outside the classrooms. By focusing on character development, intercultural understanding, personal and group responsibilities, service learning, and healthy living, our students are already contributing to a better and more peaceful world.
