The ISS High School Community strives to meet our school vision, preparing students for greater global participation by helping them become responsible, empowered learners. The maturing teenager is encouraged to participate in all aspects our four-year college preparatory program.
Our curriculum offers a balanced variety of course offerings responding to the diverse needs of our student body. Courses offered in grades 9 and 10 allow students to enter the International General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations, if required. In grades 11 and 12, students follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme which is internationally recognized as an entrance credential by universities.
The High School Guidance Office provides valuable assistance in the selection of courses and college applications. This is complemented by our Advisory Program which is designed to provide individual attention and support for each student to ensure academic and social growth as they become open-minded, empowered learners and self-determining global citizens
A broad range of co- and extra-curricular activities are available including competitive sports (NECIS), Model United Nations, drama (school plays and ISTA), music (band and choir), and service groups. Our excellent facilities allow for the best support of these rewarding activities.
At ISS, we recognize that learning is for life and the fun and love of learning should be nurtured. We recognize that our students will have stewardship of our planet in the future. We must ensure they have the knowledge, understanding and skills to meet the challenges presented by such responsibility.
Our students and their learning is at the centre of what we do and if they succeed, then so do we.
We invite you to visit us and explore the possibilities for your teenager at the International School of Stavanger!
