Reykjavik - School Report Question and Answers

Describe the physical education resources at the school. Is there a gym? A swimming pool? Are there playing fields or tennis courts available?

PE is done at a local gym and swimming classes (mandatory in Iceland) are held at an outdoor heated pool in the neighborhood. While the school lacks certain amenities, I like that the kids are exposed to local culture by using neighborhood amenities. - Jul 2022

No gym or pool, though there are swimming classes that are held at local pool. The school has a lot of open recess space and playing fields. - Jan 2022

A- Our physical education teacher was phenomenal and demanded a high level of excellence from the kids. Students got to learn how to swim (at a high level), learn basketball from a professional and engage in games from around the world. - Aug 2014

I would have love to see more frequent PE classes. However, knowing the set-up at ISI, the kids are signed up in other local sports programs after school - basketball, swimming and horseback riding. The youth programs in Gardabaer/Reyjavik is fantastic. They have a variety of offerings for all age groups and multiple practices each week. The challenge is shuttling the children from places to places as there are no public or school shuttle services. This being said, everything is pretty close together. - May 2014

This program is OK and includes an indoor gym and pool. I have yet to see any physiology being taught. It's basically structured recess. - Apr 2014

The school faclities are nice and it has a large indoor gym and pool. The students swim once per week. - Mar 2014
