When we asked about the schools in Norway, they said...

"Schools in Norway are generally considered to be of a high quality. All children are required to attend school, beginning with preschool when they are three or four years old and continuing through tenth grade, at which point they must choose between different types of upper secondary school. Schools in Norway offer both academic and vocational programs, as well as evening classes for adults. All students benefit from smaller class sizes and individualized attention from highly qualified teachers. In addition to content instruction, schools in Norway emphasize practical instruction. To ensure that all students can benefit from these resources, Norway provides free textbooks and implements tuition-free education. Schools in Norway also offer students the opportunity to learn a second language and take part in a range of extracurricular activities," said another expat in with children at .

"It is a wonderful school with small classes and a true feeling of community. If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to the teacher, principals or director. They are very responsive and happy to meet with you," remarked another parent with kids at International School of Bergen in Bergen (Sandsli area).
