Norwegian International School in Hong Kong

Norwegian International School in Hong Kong was established in 1984 primarily to provide education for the children of Norwegian missionaries. During this period of the school s history, Norwegian was the medium of instruction, with English lessons conducted by subject teachers. The decision to change to an English medium curriculum was made, and in 1994 The Norwegian School opened its doors to students from international backgrounds. In 2001 the name of the school was officially changed to Norwegian International School, and in 2003 the Norwegian Lutheran Mission became the sole owners of NIS. Throughout these changes, the school community, along with the commitment to providing globally oriented, quality, Christian education with a Scandinavian touch has continued to grow. Norwegian International School is now the home of about seventy students and ten staff from more than ten countries, offering classes from Kindergarten to Grade 6 (age 3-12). Norwegian International School is committed to provide a nurturing, quality education with a Scandinavian touch in a Christian environment, enabling staff and students to cooperate in reaching their full potential as whole persons. The Norwegian International School uses International Primary Curriculum, now used in more than 90 schools in 38 countries. Based on the most explicit learning standards that cover subject, personal and uniquely international understanding, the IPC provides teachers and schools with more than 70 Units of Work around which to build a dynamic and exciting thematic curriculum for children aged 3-12.
