Kongsberg International School seeks to serve Kongsberg and its surrounding communities by providing a high-quality international education for students aged 6-16, based on the International Baccalaureate programmes, using English as the principal medium of instruction.
We do this through:
Global responsibility, local rooting
By international standard, KIS is a small school. This allows us to maintain a close-knit community with a family feel. We value each student for who they are and promote their strengths, emphasizing small class sizes and positive teacher-student relationships.
KIS is part of a network of over 4,000 certified International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools (www.ibo.org). We are proud to offer, after a rigorous authorization process, the world-renowned IB Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes. Kongsberg Videregående School offers a fully authorized IB Diploma Programme for students from age 16 at its campus just a short distance from KIS. The three programmes are designed to complement each other in order to develop students' intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
Global Responsibility, Local Rooting:
We come from different countries and cultures, but we share Kongsberg as a home. Although many of our students are Norwegian, a growing international community in Kongsberg and Buskerud has provided enrolment of students from more than 30 nations. We encourage students to engage with their communities, both within and outside of school. We aim to educate global citizens who assume responsibility for a better world in the future.
