|Qualities and characteristics best defining the school||
The international section of the Bernadotte School, is an international school in Denmark which offers education from pre-school to 9th grade (age group 6 – 15 years).
Bernadotte School is a Danish school with an international, English-speaking section called The Little House. It is important to note that the school is Danish and not an American or British international school, and that its working methods, philosophy and the general ambience of the school will reflect this difference.
|Teaching approach of the school||
The pedagogical and educational principles and methods with which the Bernadotte School works must always be set in relation to reality, and only then do the labels of a progressive or alternative schooling have meaning. Here the school touches upon what was the inspiration in the formation of Bernadotte School: The courage to face reality in all of its reflections and expressions.
The Scandinavian tradition of openness, tolerance and freedom of mind shows also in its educational systems. Knowledge and learning are seen as tools which enhance the individual’s understanding and appreciation of life, rather than being a checklist of academic goals which can be pursued in isolation. It is our experience that the skills and strengths which our system fosters stand the student in good stead for any academic study undertaken in later life.
