Learning Support Programme
At Skagerak, a continuous private, co-educational IB education is offered to both international and local students from kindergarten up to high school graduation. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma (DP) programmes form the basis of the education.
Students benefit from an English medium education, with additional emphasis on Norwegian language in order to support students as they move towards functional bilingualism.
The staff comprises highly experienced and motivated teachers, most of whom have a background in international education.
Skagerak International School, High School was founded in 1991. The administration endeavours to meet the special examination requirements of individual students upon request. SIS provides the two-year IB Diploma programme, with an additional pre-DP year for those coming from the Norwegian school system.
Skagerak Middle School was founded in 2000, along with the Primary School and Kindergarten. The Middle School was authorized to offer the Middle Years Program of the IB in February 2008. It provides a five-year programme.
Skagerak Primary School was authorized to offer the IB PYP in June 2006 and provides six class levels.
All schools share facilities on the waterfront at Framnes, Sandefjord.
