Congratulations to grade 8 and 9

We would like to congratulate our 8th and 9th grade students with fantastic results on their national tests.
Our grade 8 students scored on average 7-39% better than the other schools in Aust-Agder and Arendal on the tests for reading (Norwegian), calculation (maths) and English. Our grade 9 students scored on average 6-9% higher than the other schools in Aust-Agder and Arendal on the tests for reading (Norwegian) and calculation (maths).
Considering that all of the tests were completed in Norwegian and that several of the participating students have Norwegian as a second language, these results are even more impressive. Our students’ achievements for the calculations test have been particularly impressive as our students learn all of their mathematical vocabulary in English which was an additional challenge for our students. The results for reading are also remarkable due to the fact that most of our instruction happens in English, but that our students still score higherArendal International School is very proud of our students’ achievements! We do nevertheless aim even higher next year!We would like to take the opportunity to thank our supportive parents for an eventful year, and to congratulate all of our students with their impressive developments in year that has passed.
