Our Programme focuses on skill development and formative learning – a learning that does not educate in a vacuum but relates knowledge and thinking skills from subject to subject, building from grade to grade. The ultimate aim of our programme is that students take with them a sense of Inquiry, and a love of knowledge.
A recent study conducted in the UK by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) shows that students enrolled in International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme stand out from the crowd. Read the research summary published by the International Baccalaureate.
We believe that students leaving our programme will be different persons from the ones that arrived. They will be wiser, more organized, more knowledgeable, globally aware and well prepared.
At ISB we work to build an Upper School Community, one that balances academics with activities in the rich and beautiful environment of Bergen and the south-western coast of Norway.
For additional information about the Upper School please look at our ISB Handbook and MYP Curriculum Handbook.
