Welcome to Oslo International School...


At OIS, we believe education has the power to transform lives, and we strive to create a positive, rigorous, and inclusive learning environment for all students.

- Thale Herbertson, Incoming Head of School (August 2024)

We are delighted to welcome you to Oslo International School, where we provide a world-class education for students aged 3-18 in one of the world’s most beautiful, sustainable, safe, and liveable cities. We are proud to lead a dynamic and diverse community of students, staff, and leaders who are passionate about learning and committed to making a positive impact on the world.

Our experienced and caring staff is dedicated to supporting the academic, personal, and social development of every student, and we are committed to providing a well-rounded education that goes beyond the classroom. 

OIS students consistently achieve excellent results, experience success at their next schools, and gain admission to top-tier universities around the world. However, as impressive as the school’s academic successes are, we are most proud that OIS students are caring, kind, supportive, and responsible. 

One of the things that makes Oslo such a remarkable place to learn and grow is its exceptional quality of life. Located in the heart of Norway, one of the most advanced democracies in the world, Oslo is a small, accessible, and cozy city that offers all of the cosmopolitanism of a significant European capital. With its stunning natural beauty, balanced approach to work and life, rich cultural heritage, and vibrant cultural scene, Oslo is the perfect place for students to learn, grow, and thrive. They get involved and make a positive difference in their school and the wider community.

Our community at OIS is special, and we are proud of the strong relationships we have built with our students, families, and staff. We have just over 600 students from over 50 nations, and staff from more than 20 nations, making us one of the most diverse international schools in Scandinavia. 

We hope you will consider joining us at OIS, where we are committed to empowering students to develop their unique potential and become inspired global citizens. If you have any questions, or are an internationally-minded family that would like to learn more about our school and community, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Warm regards,

The Leadership Team
