Private Schools in Oslo

School bench in NorwaySecondary education in Norway is mainly in public schools. 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.

Private schools in Norway offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma in Norwegian. There are also an English international school in Oslo, several English international schools in Norway which offer the International Baccalaureate, as well as French and German schools.
