Our new vision is in line with Fagfornyelsen: “Life mastery through exploratory and inclusive learning”. The values ​​should characterize the school’s operation and be a compass in the education of the pupils. The values ​​should also equip students for the future. The pupils will encounter a diverse society, and it is important to develop openness, robustness and joy of learning. The school also has a spotlight on the school environment, attendance work and standards for good training in the professional community.

Inclusive communities, both socially and academically, are important. The school has nice teaching rooms, all classrooms have interactive whiteboards and the school works purposefully and systematically to develop professional digital competence. The school is ideally located by Grønliåsen and from next school year will work even more in alternative learning arenas than just in the classroom. The school also houses the welcome class, which provides training to newly arrived pupils of primary school age.
