What are the schools in Bergen like?

"If you decide to move to Bergen, any other school there would be a better choice for your child," explained one expat living in Bergen, Norway.

"Do Not enroll your child ! From what I understand they are closing down the high school due to financial mismanagement. This school has no books broken furniture, it is dirty and thee playground is littered with broken bottles. It has ill trained teachers and rude administrators. who seem to care little for the students," said another parent with children at International School of Bergen in Bergen.

"I would think twice before enrolling my child the buildings are old and unkempt and the curriculm is not up to international standards," commented one expat when asked about International School Bergen in Bergen.

"Go ahead! A very good school. Some of the MYP teachers could be stronger in representing their subjects, but in general your child meets friendly, motivated and well prepared teachers in a great international community. It is a pity that the school doesn't offer the IB diploma...," explained one expat in Bergen, Norway with kids at International School Bergen.
