When we asked about the schools in Denmark, they said...

"Beware of smiling head mistresses, they deceive. None of the international schools are good, but this one pretends to be something it is not. There is no equity for your children and I would advice any parent thinking of putting there child into education in Denmark, to think again. This is not a good school," commented one expat when asked about Bjorn in Hellerup.

"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," remarked one expat living in Copenhagen with children attending Bjorn's International School .
