Private schools in Oslo

Students in Norway generally attend public schools for secondary education. Until 2005, Norwegian law held private secondary schools to be illegal unless they offered a "religious or pedagogic alternative", so the only private schools in existence were religious (Christian), Steiner/Waldorf, Montessori schools and Danielsen. The first "standard" private upper secondary schools opened in the autumn of 2005. 

There are a number of private schools in Oslo, teaching different curricula. Private schools are popular with expats, as the language of instruction is often a mix of English and Norwegian, taught at a more affordable price than international schools. 

Below are some of the more popular private schools in Oslo.
