Bergen Handelsgymnasium

Bergen Handelsgymnasium (BHG) is an upper secondary school in Bergen, Norway.

Established in 1904, it is one of the oldest gymnasia in the country. The school is known to have high admission requirements and able pupuls. Furthermore, the school is known for its projects regarding internationalisation, differentiation and interdisciplinarity. Bergens Handelsgymnasium was established in 1904. Its architect was Jens Zetlitz Monrad Kielland, a nephew of the novelist Alexander Kielland. In 1976, Hordaland County Council took over the running of the school. In 2006, the school won a Holberg Prize, with a project on school lunches. The same year, the school was threatened with being shut down and merged into a new, larger school, but it was later decided that this will not be done. The Media and Communication study program at the school is one of the most popular in the county. Data from 2011 show that the school holds 275 girls and only 179 boys. The school is one of three upper secondary schools in the inner-city of Bergen, situated about 100 meters from the Bergen Railway Station. It is recognized by the characteristic façade covered in ivy.

Every year, a revue is arranged in the name of the pupils. Auditions are held, where only a few are picked. The revue is regarded as one of the large revues in upper secondary schools in Bergen. The revue has its own band, dancers, actors, technicians, photographers, script writers and financial managers.
