An answer to some of the questions here:
Well, let's translate what Assistant Communications Manager at the court, Sven Gjeruldsen, said to TV2 and NRK:
(He spoke to VG too BTW, where he said much of the same.)
''Oslo Internasjonale skole følger en internasjonal læreplan, og derfor har elevene ungdomsskole fra 7. til 10. trinn, og ikke 8. til 10. som i offentlig skole.
Det trinnet som prinsessen startet på er ferdig. Nå har hun ett år igjen på ungdomsskolen, og det tar hun på Uranienborg skole.''
Translated to: ''Oslo International School follows an international curriculum, and therefore the students have *Lower secondary school* from Grades 7-10, and not 8-10 as in public school.
The Grades which The Princess started on is finished. Now she has one year left at *Lower secondary school* (if we count after the Norwegian public version, he mean), and that she takes at Uranienborg.''
(From me: Be also aware that the pupils start one year earlier than what they do in the Norwegian school, i.e at the age of 5, not 6.)
Q. Hvorfor skal prinsessen over i offentlig skole i stedet for å fortsette i Upper secondary på Oslo internasjonale skole?
Why is the Princess going over to public school instead of continuing at Upper secondary at Oslo International School?
A. ''Prinsessen har hatt stort utbytte av å gå på en engelskspråklig skole. Det var naturlig å slutte på Oslo Internasjonale skole nå, fordi Prinsessen er ferdig med det trinnet hun startet på. Prinsessen har fremdeles ett år igjen på norsk ungdomsskole, og ønsker å gå det siste året på Uranienborg skole.''
''The Princess has benefited greatly from attending an English-language school. It was natural to stop at Oslo International School now, because the Princess has finished the Grades she started on. The Princess still has one year left at the Norwegian *Lower secondary school,* and wants to go the last year at Uranienborg.''
Q. Hvorfor falt valget på Uranienborg skole?
Why did the choose fell on Uranienborg school?
A. ''Valget falt på Uranienborg skole ut fra en helhetsvurdering. Kronprinsfamilien ønsket plass på en osloskole. Uranienborg skole ligger rett i nærheten av Slottet, og skolen hadde ledig plass.''
''The choice fell on Uranienborg school based on an overall assessment. The CP-Family wanted a place at an Oslo school. Uranienborg School is located close to The Palace, and the school had vacant space.''
He also said it was too early to say anything about which *Upper secondary school* (high school) The Princess is going to start on in 2020.
From me: Hmm, what he seems to be saying is that it's quite ''natural'' for The Princess (which it obviously is) to take one year at the Norwegian public version of *Lower secondary school* (from 2019-2020) instead of starting at *Upper secondary* at Oslo International School for so dropping out after the first year to start at the public version in the autumn of 2020.
Why is it more ''natural''? Because, as TV2's Royal Expert, Kjell Arne Totland said it, it will most likely make the transition to *Upper secondary school* ''lettere og smidigere'' (easier and smoother).
But couldn't she just have taken the whole Upper secondary thing at Oslo International School? No, she was never going to do that.
Why? Because as Norway's future monarch, she is expected to have gone through a proper education in Norwegian and ''New Norwegian.'' - A written form of the Norwegian language, used by around 10% of the population.
What does the Norwegian press/people make of it?
Well, although it was widely covered on May 27th, I haven't seen ''one'' opinion piece or poll on it.
But, considering that The CP-Couple were heavily criticised by the media, various so-called experts, and several MPs responsible for royal matters in the Storting when they took the children out of the public school in 2014, I think most people are pretty happy about it. So, IMO, a good PR move. Especially now that the monarchy has been up for debate, due to the Märtha stuff.
And to you who wondered about Sverre Magnus, yes, he will (according to the court) continue at the Montessori school.

It´s of course all right calling him Sverre Magnus for us who are no family members.
But just "Sverre" is a false thing to do.
Well, I won't go into an argument about names. - But again, as long as the court refers to him as ''Sverre Magnus'' (and thus also the media), I will in some instances continue to use/write ''Sverre.'' - Why?
1. It's his first name.
2. It's easier to write/say than using both his names.
3. Almost no one knows who I mean if I just write/say ''Magnus.''
And taking these facts into consideration, no it's not ''false!''
