At the International School of Stavanger, our international curriculum draws upon best practises from several national curricular models, including those in North America, United Kingdom, Australia and international curricula. It supports our core values of Learning, Well-being and Community.


Pre-School Programme (3 and 4 Year Olds)

We base our practises and methodologies on the forward-thinking Reggio Emilia inspired approach to pre-school education, which is a way of observing children’s curiosities and interests and responding with ways that help them make connections and expand their academic and social potentials.

Using an international curriculum, benchmark and standards, Kindergarten-Grade 2 students experience a variety of subjects taught in English by a highly qualified homeroom teacher and specialists.
