I strongly believe that mastering the english language, experiencing a rich cultural school environment with focus on the Arts and acquiring the necessary 21st century skills through inquiry based learning, is what students need to be prepared for the world of tomorrow. Children’s International School started in Fredrikstad in 2012 to accomplish this. We recruit the main part of our teachers from English speaking countries or teachers with a Master’s degree in English language and literature, we have an extended Arts programme with music, dance and drama, and we use the inquiry based learning approach as developed by the IBO. We currently have two operational schools, one in Fredrikstad and one in Moss
An important part of our success in education is that we provide a secure environment for teaching and learning. We believe in teaching good behaviour, good manners and that the children feel safe when they have teachers with clear rules and consequences. We also have high expectations for all members, both students and teachers, in our community. Every member of the school is committed to placing high quality education first.
Every year we have high scores on the National tests placing us as one of the leading schools in Norway academically. In addition, the student survey from UDIR show that the students are enjoying their life as students in our school.
We see the need to teach our students how to work hard and be ambitious, and to become life-long learners that are open minded and knowledgeable.
We are proud to be an authorised IB school and see that the IB pedagogical system makes the students motivated and engaged in their own learning.
Focusing on both academic subjects and esthetic subjects develops the students and give them an excellent education. Our extended music programme is a big advantage for our students.
Our goal is to prepare our students for the 21st century and help them become lifelong learners.
