«What I like about school is the balance between learning and fun. It makes me a happy student. I have wonderful teachers who make us knowledgeable and caring friends. A good learner for me is one who can share his learning, take risks to try new things, communicate his ideas, interact confidently with the outside world and have lots of research opportunities.»

«Det som er bra med skolen er at vi kan jobbe med det vi ønsker å jobbe med. Jeg har den frihetsfølelsen som motiverer meg til å jobbe mer på skolen. Vi har et godt sosialt miljø her også. Lærerne våre er snille og vi er trygge på dem.»

«Det er en fordel at vi blir venner med ulike elever fra ulike trinn takket være blandede aldersgrupper i miljøet. Det lærerne gjør på skolen lærer oss mye, hvor de skaper et godt miljø både sosialt og faglig.»

«What I like about NLIS is that we go beyond in our research while we are learning about a topic. This helps us to have an in depth understand of what we are learning. Practical learning is always useful and this what we do at NLIS. We have also learned to take actions as a result of our learning.»

Elev, Norlights International School Oslo

«The thing I like best about school is the way the teachers teach. Of course playing with friends is always fun and I like to do that. Being at NLIS, I have learned to respect others and developed my creative thinking skills. I have also learned to acknowledge other people’s work through academic honesty.»

«Når jeg skal på tur så kan vi velge sammen. Vi gjør avstemming med ispinner. Noen ganger vil jeg til biblioteket, men da vil kanskje ikke de andre barna. Da venter vi til neste gang.»

«De voksne er flinke til å hjelpe. De leker med oss og ser hva vi kan.»

Simantika (8)

Elev, Norlights International School Oslo

«The thing I like best about school is the opportunity for conceptual based learning. I get to learn the details of what I am learning and thus learn my subjects deeply. I also like the inquiry process at school. I get detailed answers to all my questions which helps me to have better understanding of what I am learning. I also like the various activities at school.»

Jeg har en god relasjon til lærere og de er snille og flinke til å finne det som gir oss læring.»

Elev, Norlights International School Oslo

«It makes me happy when school organizes a lot of field visits for us. I also like the way our teachers design our assessments. In subject I like science, art and music the most. At NLIS I have learned to be a risk taker, caring and an open minded person. The best part is that all the students here learn how to be together and have a caring attitude towards each other.»

Far, Norlights International School Oslo

«Our priority for our children is education, and we think that the IB system offers a more serious and challenging program for our children in comparison to public schools. We like the teachers at NLIS, who are highly qualified. The small number of people in each class also means teachers can cater to each student individually. The environment is friendly and accepting. The children also feel that they are learning a lot at school and therefore look forward to arriving at school. The school is multicultural, and therefore very accepting of people with different backgrounds, as well as safe to the children. The school is relatively inexpensive and the teachers are outstanding.»

Mor, Norlights Montessoriskole Drammen

«Vi valgte denne skolen fordi vårt barn var i behov av en annen pedagogisk forankring og en annen måte å bli møtt på enn det offentlig skole kunne tilby. Her blir barna møtt som fullverdige mennesker og lærerne har fokus på å se mer enn bare faglige prestasjoner. De har også fokus på at hvert barn lærer på forskjellige måter og i forskjellig tempo. Dette legger de til rette for. Vi har møtt et trygt og inkluderende miljø som fullstendig forandret livet til vårt barn. Skolen har også fokus på sosiale ferdigheter, høflighet, respekt, selvstendighet og omsorg for andre. Dette opplever vi som en viktig del av barnas modning og utrustning videre i livet.»

«We chose NLIS because of the English language and because the school offers more and have a close care focus towards my child. We really like the child-adult relations (teachers and administration) and we see that our child enjoys the general school environment. We are much satisfied with my child’s happiness and improvement. «

«Jeg opplever skolen vår som god og inkluderende, raus og varm. Dette er f.eks vårt årlige 17. mai-arrangement et god eksempel på.»

Stein Zahl

Far, Norlights Montessoribarnehage Drammen

«Vi kjenner til Montessoribarnehagen fra utlandet og da minstegutten skulle begynne i barnehagen, var valget lett for oss. Vi liker spesielt godt at personalet tar seg god tid til å bli godt kjent med barna, og at opplegget blir individuelt tilpasset barnas behov.»

Benedicte Richardson

Mor, Norlights International School Oslo

«Our children joined NLIS in 2016, after having grown up abroad. It was natural to choose an English speaking school as this was the preferred language for our children. In my experience the school has a down to earth student mass with little or no peer pressure, students come from all over the world and the school is convenient located for us. The highlights are the teachers. The children adore their home room teachers, who are very helpful in preparing the children for their future. My children are always happy going to school, they have good friends there and it is a comfortable environment for them. The school is quite small and the classes are small so students get a lot of individual attention from the teachers. Most of the students know each other also across year groups and the school represents a diverse population. It’s pretty cool that the children have friends from all over the world. I am a satisfied parent because of the teachers and the fact that my children are always happy going to school. NLIS is a school with a mission to inspire children to lifelong learning.»

Natale Rolim

Mor, Norlights International School Oslo

«My son was attending an IB school before we moved to Oslo and our family was very happy with his academic and personal achievements within a multicultural environment. NLIS was a suggestion from a friend.

NLIS clearly also offers a safe and warm environment to the students. My son came back home after his first day at NLIS with a big smile on his face and happy because his new friends were very respectful with him. And that is how it has been since then.
Every morning my son is looking forward to meeting his friends from different grades before school starts. His sense of inquiry and curiosity are also motivated by the teachers and constantly making him learn in a more effective way at NLIS. He is never afraid to take risks and that introduces him to a world of discoveries that he loves.

I am very pleased when I see a smile in my son’s face every morning when he goes to school and in the afternoon when he comes back home. He is always excited to share his learning experiences and that makes me feel like I did make the right school choice for my son.»

Far, Norlights International School Oslo

«We wanted our daughter to be in a multicultural environment. The school has excellent communication with the parents. We have a great relationship with the class teacher and the school is normally willing to listen to parents and tries to accommodate their needs if possible. At times the school even keeps the parents busy by giving quite a bit of homework. The school is also good at arranging social activities together with the parents. Our daughter enjoys being at school, meeting with her friends at school and learning in the classroom. She also has an open and honest dialogue with her class teacher. Our daughter used to go to Norwegian public school. We saw huge improvement in her within the first six months of her going to NLIS. That was very satisfying and she is continuously improving.»

«Jeg opplever at barna mine blir sett hver eneste dag. Det er flott at vi foreldre har (hvis vi vil) så god mulighet til å følge med på hva som skjer på skolen, være seg saker i FAU el. lignende, og ved direkte kontakt med skolen dersom det skulle være nødvendig. Skolen er oversiktlig og ikke så stor, og det er lett å bli kjent med de fleste (både barn, foreldre og lærere). Nettopp det liker jeg, for det er så utrolig viktig for at alle skal ha en god hverdag på skolen vår! På den måten er det enkelt å ta opp små saker med en gang de måtte oppstå, slik at det ikke blir misforståelser eller vonde og store problemer ut av dem.»
