"Principal Bolstad, what are the backgrounds of the pupils in your public school? What is the diversity (racial and socio-economic) within the student body?

Our school draws pupils from our local community. They are teenagers living near the school. Our community is not very diversified as it is in a suburb that has a high socio-economic level with few inhabitants of other nationalities. A lot of the parents have advanced education and a lot of them have leading jobs.

How long is the school day and what meal service do you provide?

All pupils have 22.5 lessons per week, each lasting for 60 minutes. The school day schedule varies. The 8th grade starts at 8:30, 9th grade at 8:50, and 10th grade at 9:10. On two days of every week, the pupils end school between 1:00pm and 1:40pm, while on one or two other days, they don't finish until 3:30pm.

The school does not provide free meals. Most schools in Norway don't. We have a small cantina where students can buy baguettes, yoghurt, etc. Our students have one major break each day; two breaks if they work late. As with all lower secondary schools in Norway, we provide free fruit for the pupils every day.

What percentage of the children read and do math at their grade level or higher?

The Norwegian school system does not have defined grade level indicators. Our results on the national test of reading are at the highest level. Only about 4% of our students are under the "critical limit" in reading based on different reading tests. As for math, we have no nationally set levels, but when our students leave our school to attend upper secondary school, only about 4% of them have difficulty in finishing upper secondary. In the Norwegian school system, a student is moved up to the next level whether she has the skills that are needed or not
