Head of School Welcome
Welcome to Sandnes International School.
As a newly established international school in Greater Stavanger Region, our school is founded on the motivation of our students, the skill of our faculty and the ambitions to make a difference to the world.
Our teaching and learning practices are rooted in the International Baccalaureate Programme, helping students develop as the whole person and challenging them to achieve their highest potential as individuals – and as caring, ethical, open-minded, balanced and adaptable global citizens.
Everything that happens in the school is based upon a strong sense of values, guided by our mission and vision. These, and an increasing emphasis on service, act as a guide in all that we do.
Located in beautiful western Norway, SDIS offers a safe and green environment. It is also very convenient for families who choose to live in Stavanger/Sola – just over 10 minutes away by bus from Sandnes Sentrum, with the nearest bus station only 5 minutes walk away from our school.
Our doors are open to you. I encourage you to take some time to explore our school to get a feel for the school and find out more about the opportunities that exist here.
Hope to see you soon.
