A school for all

IST is a friendly, small, forward thinking school located in the pleasant residential area of Hovet, just south of the centre of Porsgrunn and close to the E18 motorway.

Our students and staff come from Grenland, other parts of Norway and from all over the world. Students and staff respect and value each other and our school environment.

Collaboration, independence, responsibility, problem solving and inquiry are important elements of how we work together and what we wish students to develop in themselves.
