Why is an ISB education the right choice for your family?
Since its inception in 1975, the International School of Bergen (ISB) has supported many hundreds of international and local families residing in and around this city. Knowledge and skilled workers from around the world have entrusted the English-language education of their children to ISB and the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. The IB is a highly regarded and progressive educational framework designed to support internationally mobile families in thousands of international schools around the world.
The IB curriculum employs student-centred, inquiry-based, interdisciplinary methods to optimize the success of our students in an increasingly technological and globally integrated world. The International Baccalaureate develops resources, strategies and professional development to drive deeper learning and teaching. To gain and retain authorization, IB schools are regularly monitored to ensure we meet high standards.
International Baccalaureate graduates are well prepared for further study and correspondingly, the IB Diploma is highly favoured by the world’s leading universities. ISB students, therefore, not only gain content knowledge but the flexibility, resilience and resourcefulness to apply this knowledge to many and varying contexts. For example, an ISB student does not merely learn science but becomes a scientist by identifying problems, developing solutions and communicating effectively to make a difference in the world.
ISB is further accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS).
