MYP Mathematics Teacher

Who we are

Kongsberg International School (KIS) is an IB school at its core and we are passionate about teaching the PYP and MYP curricula. We aim to ensure that students have a positive learning experience which will prepare them for not only their future learning but to be valued members of society in a fast-changing world.

KIS was established in 2003 to serve the needs of an increasingly international community in the “Technology Town” of Kongsberg. We work closely with local industry, the wider local community and the local environment as a means to strengthen learning engagements. We have also initiated ground-breaking projects that have taken our students to many parts of the world and opened their eyes to the true meaning of global citizenship.

Being a small school with approximately 200 students and 36 staff members, KIS prides itself on its close-knit, family-like atmosphere. The school's international, multicultural dynamic is further enriched by students from over 30 nationalities and staff from around the globe. Kongsberg International School is a non-profit, independent institution primarily funded by state subsidies and supplemented by limited school fees, resulting in an excitingly diverse student body.

Kongsberg, located in the southeast of Norway, is a small university town with easy access to Oslo, scenic mountains, and the south coast. With a population of around 25,000, Kongsberg is known for its international high-tech companies, offering a safe and family-friendly environment. The town provides abundant opportunities for outdoor leisure activities, including golf, fishing, hiking, climbing, cross-country and alpine skiing.
