Welcome to the Middle School at ISS!
The Middle School (ages from 11-13 or 14), is considered a bridge between the Primary School and the High School.
The Middle School at the International School of Stavanger (ISS) has a vibrant, supportive and enthusiastic environment. We feel confident that your child and family will enjoy the middle school experience!
Our objective is to provide a true Middle School programme that is developmentally appropriate and academically enriching. Our role is to support students, to encourage positive attitudes and relationships, to teach them strategies and processes and to be there when they need help. The Middle School at ISS is specifically designed to provide for the unique, diverse and changing physical, social, emotional, interpersonal and intellectual needs of students who are progressing from childhood to adolescence.
To accomplish these goals, the dedicated and highly professional teachers bring not only high levels of experience in education, but also a total commitment to the well-being of each student.
Students study a range of subjects: Art, Band, Computers, Choir, Design Technology, English, French or Spanish, Health Education, Literacy, Mathematics, Norwegian, Physical Education, Research Skills, Science, Social Studies (History and Geography), and one exploratory period per week that is an elective.
The curriculum is integrated, challenging and exploratory with varied approaches to Teaching and Learning. There are also comprehensive performing arts opportunities and a wide variety of athletic competitions and extra-curricular activities.
