Our students

The students at RIS come from a wide range of situations and circumstances. Whilst the majority of students come with some connection to Norway we are also an international school with students connected to over 30 countries from around the world.

We have a wide diversity of students coming from a huge range of cultural, linguistic, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. This is considered one of the greatest strengths of the school.

The students in our care will be the guardians and leaders of our future society, a humbling responsibility.

Our Families

Like the students at Romerike International School each and every family is unique.

Most of the families at RIS have one or both parents that are Norwegain. Some families are fully international and part of the global workforce and take advantage of the school’s international curriculum allowing them to move around the world with ease. Other families want to take advantage of the progressive internationally minded curriculum to challenge their children and prepare them for a competitive world.

RIS is an inclusive school and prides itself on providing a considerate, compassionate education to children of all abilities, an aspect that many families appreciate.

Our teachers

Teachers at RIS come from all over the world, with a vast range of educational experience and from the wider world.

Interships

The RIS Internship Programme provides a supervised and meaningful working experience for university students through the Erasmus program and/or recent graduates. The school is also committed to helping those in need of a praksisplass, either through NAV or as part of a university placement.

We offer the unique opportunity to learn, share, and connect with our dedicated and innovative community. Interns also get the opportunity to be directly involved in real projects and exposed to multiple activities.

This is a two way relationship and we expect our interns to bring with them a wealth of experience and skills that the school can take advantage of.

The programme is designed for interns to learn, grow, and take action now. Having completed an internship participants will walk out with personal and professional growth, a network of like-minded professionals and a deeper understanding of education and the crucial role it has in developing a sustainable future

Internships are offered depending on the needs and capacity of our school.
