Thank you for your interest in the International School of Stavanger (ISS). Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make with many different factors to take into account.

Our website offers an insight into our educational philosophy and a flavour of what we have to offer, which we hope will help you in your decision-making process.

The best way to learn about ISS and its unique ethos is to visit us in person. We certainly encourage tours, however, we understand that this is not always possible.

We can never presume to know just how difficult it can be for you to change your child’s school, place of work or country of residence. Indeed for some of our families, it is all of these at the same time.

Whatever your situation might be, we strive to be on hand throughout the admissions process to answer any questions you may have and make the enrolment of your child as simple and straightforward as possible. Kindly complete our online enquiry form and we will be back in touch promptly.

In the meantime, please explore our website to discover our vibrant learning community and student life, find out what makes learning at ISS special and to better understand why ISS comes highly recommended from parents and student alumni around the world.

On behalf of our Director and all the staff at ISS, we look forward to meeting you!


Kindest regards,

Ms. Sarah Osborne

Admissions Officer
