Driven by the IB mission statement 

The development of Sandnes International School is driven by the IB´s powerful mission. 

As an IB World School, we share the IB´s mission and philosophy o empower young people with the values, knowledge, and skills to create a better and more peaceful world.  We share a common belief that education can help to build a better world.

To us, IB not only a way to learn but most importantly, it is is a way of living.

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
