Our vision is to educate students for global participation by encouraging them to become inquirers, open-minded and fluent in both English and Norwegian.

Primary years programme

Tromsø International School offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students aged 6 to 12. The PYP prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.


The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The programmes encourage students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Middle years programme

Tromsø International School offers the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 12-16. The MYP aims to develop active and internationally minded students who can make connections between their studies and the real world. Students are empowered to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of local, national and global significance.
