Our upper secondary school is situated at Kalstad, a couple of kilometres
from the centre of Kragerȥre, a varied selection of education is
offered, gathered together in a common school building and under a
common administration. As a public school, it is owned by Telemark
County Council. All together the school has 450 students distributed
in five lines of study. Some of these lines are primarily in
preperation for vocational careers, while others are on the whole
for further education. In the proximity of the school, you will
find a residential area, in addition to recreation possibilities
in the form of woodland paths and sports stadium, and sports centre -
The municipality of Kragerø has from 10500 to 11000
inhabitants, a little over half of these living in the municiple centre
of the same name. Trade is varied with commerce and industry, primary
industry and tourism, and the extensive school offer must be seen in connection
with this. Kragerø's position between East and South Norway has
given the area a favorable climate with more sunny days and fewer rain-days
than the country's mean average. When this is combined with the beautiful
skerries, it is not difficult to understand why this otherwise sleepy
town experiences a few hectic sommer months every year.
On these pages, we don't just want to present the school's offer of education
possibilities, but we also wish that the visitor gets insight into the whole
school community. We wish to show some of the breadth which is a character of
Kragerø Upper Secondary School by presenting activities that make up
part of the school day, and activities that break with it. As an example we
present impressions from school exchanges with
in Germany to illustrate that we take internationalisation seriously.
We have as a goal that these pages shall be a source of knowledge and information.
Here, it will be possible for students, employees, parents and outsiders to find
out where they can apply when they need help and advice, at the same time, there
are links that radiate from the school. We shall, as far as possible, try to keep
these pages updated.
