Middle Years Programme

Welcome to the Middle Years at AaIS

AaIS Middle School is open to students aged 11 to 16. In addition to meeting Norwegian national requirements, AaIS is currently also a candidate school for the MYP.

The Middle Years Programme is a challenging framework, with emphasis on encouraging students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. At AaIS it is offered as a four-year programme, and students who complete the MYP are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or Career-related Programme (CP).

Find out more about the MYP.

The curriculum comprises eight subject groups; Arts, Design, Mathematics, Individuals and societies, Language and literature (English, Norwegian), Language acquisition (English, Norwegian, Spanish), Physical and health education, and Science. Together these subjects provide a broad and balanced education for our students.

In addition to following the MYP curriculum, AaIS also ensures that students meet the requirements of the Norwegian government. After completing their final year at our school, they will be able to successfully apply to Norwegian secondary schools (videregående skole).

At AaIS we aim to develop inquiring students in a safe, supportive and challenging environment. In Middle School this means smaller classes, differentiated learning and a school programme that works towards students independently knowing how to transfer concepts, knowledge and skills in settings both in and outside of school. Students are encouraged to question and evaluate information, and to learn to combine relevant knowledge, experience and logical thinking to solve problems.

Most importantly, at AaIS we are proud to say we have a diverse group of students, in an inclusive social environment.
