Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

CIS is a school dedicated to nurturing students who are bold, brave and ready to take on the challenges of the future.

At CIS, a world leader in IB education for children aged 3-19 in Copenhagen, we offer a dynamic and well-rounded academic programme that is designed to develop curious, confident minds. This is a place where we support students to think differently. To be inquisitive. To find areas of interest and pursue them deeply; and above all, to celebrate who they are while forging meaningful relationships with peers from all over the world.

Teaching approach of the school

We are one of the original International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme schools. Since its very beginning in the mid-1960s, we have developed inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. The IB Diploma is a strong academic program, centered on the traditional core disciplines, which prepares students for entrance into colleges, universities, or other institutions providing tertiary education and training.
