Being an IB World School, we are required to follow the IB curriculum guidelines, we are not required to follow the Norwegian National Curriculum. This is the case for all subject areas throughout the school, including Norwegian language lessons. Teaching and learning may well look different to parents who are familiar with the Norwegian system, or in fact other more traditional methods of teaching.
The IB is an inquiry based approach to teaching and learning.
Parents are encouraged to come in and see how learning takes place at IST, learn more about the IB @ IST through our various blogs, websites and social media sites, attend parent workshops, open days, parent-teacher meetings, student-led conferences, unit celebrations, personal project and exhibition shows and more.
Parents are also encouraged to read up about the IB through their website www.ibo.org
