At ISS, we believe a significant amount of learning takes place outside the classroom walls. We also believe that students leading physically- and emotionally-healthy, active and balanced lives will have a better overall learning experience. With a busy and broad extra-curricular offering, students at ISS find many ways to actively engage and learn beyond the traditional classroom setting. The opportunities include:
Athletics: The ISS athletic department offers football/soccer, girls’ volleyball, boys’ rugby, basketball, swimming, cross country running and track and field.
Clubs, Groups, Musicals, Sports and More: ISS’ extra-curricular programme provides a range of activities from musicals and Model United Nations to app development and cycling clubs.
Outdoors and Travel: Throughout the year, students enjoy field trips in and outside of Norway related to course subjects, service learning, outdoor education, language immersion, sports tournaments and music and theatre festivals. A highlight for many teachers and students is taking advantage of Norway's wonderful outdoor education centers and traveling as a class to the mountains or coastline for a week of nature, exploration and learning together.
