Gjøvikregionen International School (GIS) is a young international school, which opened in August 2015. We have grown rapidly from 30 students in 2015 to 192 students this academic year (2022/2023), with waiting lists in several grade levels. Located in close proximity of NTNU, GIS became an IB World School offering the IB Primary Years Programme in July 2018 and IB Middle Years Programme in June 2019. Our graduates are well prepared to continue their education in the IB Diploma Programme at any IB school in the world, including Gjøvik and Elverum High Schools.
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.
