International connectionsnas

Øystese Gymnas is well known for its international connections. Every year we send 20 students to a Lutheran High School in Missouri, USA, and we have students from different parts of the world come here. This year we have students from Austria, Somalia, Persia, and the Philippines. Earlier we have had people come from Brazil, Italy, the USA, Germany, Japan, and Russia.

In addition to sending students to the USA for one year, we go abroad for a week every year taking all the second year students with us. This year we are going to Prague, whereas last year we went to Tallinn. Third year students have the opportunity to go abroad in smaller groups where the aim can be to practice one of the foreign languages offered, or to study specific social or scientific subjects.
