5 reviews for International School of Hellerup
I am currently a student at this school and I highly don't recommend it. The whole school is focused rather on money than the students well-being. They promise students things such as field trips, however they almost never happen. What the school has to offer is definitely not worth 50k kr per year. The facility at Østerbro is horrible, overpacked with students and the lounge space is too small to fit all the kids. The teachers are lazy and step over and humiliate students who they don't necessarily like. Almost the whole school staff including the headmaster are people who do not care about the students, certain teachers use yelling as way to communicate, they also put down students and make the atmosphere tense. If you love your kid and want what's best for it then I strongly recommend not sending it to ISH.
in the past 3 years, I see how my son has grown up with the wonderful teaching and caring from the teachers in ISH. He spent the most important 3 years to set up the solid basis for further pursuit of his education.
This is our second year at ISH and we have been really happy with the school. Our boys love going to school every day and so far we have been lucky to have really wonderful teachers (K and PYP1). Although the school is more affordable than other international schools, it offers high level of teaching, great services like Learning Support, after school care and an electives program. It offers a great international community of students, parents and teachers, would highly recommend to any new family!
We are very satisfied with the school. Our kids (PYP and MYP) started in August 2020, in the middle of the pandemic. The school has been great in continuously communicating with parents and supporting the kids with online learning during the lockdown. There is also a nice parents community around the school, organising social events and supporting newcomers.
We really love this school! I have 3 kids there and this is our 3rd year at the school. Honestly, there are not a lot of choices for international schools in Copenhagen but, in my opinion, ISH is our favourite. Its a smaller school with a family-like atmosphere. It's great value-for-money and we love the diversity!
