Head of School's Welcome

Dear prospective parents and students,

A warm welcome to the International School of Hellerup. Your visit to our website is part of a very important decision-making process about your child’s education in Copenhagen. Finding the right school is one of the major challenges for families coming to the city. So many factors come into play in determining the most suitable fit between family and school. At ISH you will find some of the best teachers, administrators, and staff members, all focused on helping children learn, grow and succeed.

Our mission is to support our pupils in realizing their potential across a broad curriculum through good learning habits and the improvement of self-discipline, courtesy and consideration for others. It is our aim that upon leaving the school, our students are confident, well-rounded individuals who are well prepared for the next stage of their education and for their role in a challenging, demanding and rapidly changing world. 

You will see that ISH is a warm, welcoming center of educational excellence, with exciting opportunities at every grade level. When you have had a chance to examine all the materials on the website, I hope you will have a better sense of who we are, what we stand for and what we can offer your family.
