Our mission

Why choose KIS and the International Baccalaureate?

Kongsberg International School is committed to developing reflective, creative, and divergent thinkers in the service of an evolving global society.

We aspire to excellence, recognizing all stakeholders as lifelong learners. We aim to maximize the potential of each individual, fostering holistic development and leadership. We value the synergy of collaboration as innovators, communicators and conceptual thinkers. We commit to putting learning into responsible action.

KIS is an IB World School, and our mission is in alignment with the International Baccalaureate Organization mission statement:

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.
