School building

on . Posted in News



The Ålesund town council decided in a vote recently to let AaIS take over the building of Nørvasund skole, GÅseid from 2013. This is a very important milestone for Aalesund International School. The terms of the lease has yet to be negotiated with the municipality, but we expect that we will reach a good agreement. The buliding needs some refurbishment before our new school can move in.


AaIS will open in August 2012 in temporary modules close to Nørvasund. We will open the PYP (classes 1-6) next august and will share facilities with public school Nørvasund skole, Hatlane.
