Parent's Review of Bjorn's International School in Copenhagen, Denmark

Mar 06, 2016
Submitted by saha

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Bjorn's International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Copenhagen

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Age 6 to 16

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

All

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Very limited facilities - small playgroundand school does not have sports facilities of its own. Science equipment is useless. There is a small computer room with very old computers but the kids are told to bring their own laptops to school.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Nothing whatsoever. Once we paid our money the scool was not interested in even answering our questions.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There are no social activities. There are no international parents on the school board, only Danish ones.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Steer clear of this school. The school principal is only interested in your money. The teachers are unprofessional. Once you sign up for a place you cannot withdraw your child from the school without forfeiting TWO YEARS of school fees. Our daughter was bullied by some older boys and the school did nothing. In the end we had to take her out of the school and get trauma counseling for her. The principal forced us to pay for the next school year after she'd left and threarened us with legal action when we questioned this. This horrible experience has colored our perception of Denmark as a country. We will NEVER come back.

Moving to Copenhagen

Expect to live in an apartment and not a home unless you have a very large budget for housing expenses. CIS and Rygaards are the only international schools I would recommend in any way. When setting a budget, double or triple it. And, lastly, rent through a rent manager and NOT directly with a home owner.

Living in Copenhagen

An expat living in Copenhagen offers an incredible glimpse of what it's to live there. Although Denmark is very homogeneous, Danish people are open to other cultures. The high cost of living and tight job market can make staying in Copenhagen long-term difficult for many expats.

Culture Shock in Copenhagen

An expat in Denmark talks about what it's like to move to Copenhagen. Meeting people and making friends isn't easy in Denmark, because Danish people are reserved and take time to get to know. He enjoys the fact that most Danish people are into fitness and healthy eating.
