Full review by Amit Gupta
The school is not diverse and has majority of kids from India. They have tie up with TCS and all parents employed in TCS only send their kids there. If you are looking for your kid to be in multi cultural environment, this is not a good choice then. Parents over here have already applied to different international schools and go here as last option.
The school lacks infrastructure- there are no proper class rooms- rather they need to combine grades 1 and 2 in one class. They are also planning to start grade 3 and 4 next year- again with class combine concept. They do not have proper segregation between kids grades.
School starts at 8.15am- they do not have before SFO facility as there are no parents willing to have this facility. This makes difficult for both working parents. School also does not have much clubs or facilities for after SFO as well as there are less parents willing to take this facility.
They lack staff there. There is only one teacher and rest is support staff. At 2pm, you can see kids climbing to school boundery walls with no teachers around. Also as school doors open at 2, kids rush out by door,- if you are late in picking up, there is major chance that your kid will be hanging around outside school. The issue was already taken up with school but it was addressed for some days only.

I am sorry that you have received incorrect information about VIS. You state that you are a current parent, this is not true. To my knowledge you have no affiliation to our school. Please know that we do follow all Danish regulations concerning COVID-19, specifically that our class groups are kept separate all the time. Our After School Care provides various activities to help the development of our students (ie. music appreciation, cooking projects, art projects, games, dancing, and much more). We do offer clubs after school including STEM Club and music lessons (ie. guitar, ukulele, keyboard, and singing). We are staffed by qualified teachers (ie. two classroom teachers, one Danish language specialist, one music and physical education specialist, and after school care staff). At release time teachers wait at the school door with our students for their parents to arrive and are supervised. I myself am often outside engaging with parents.
I want to welcome you to come to VIS for a tour in order to learn more about how we really operate. Thank you.

Viking International School is a fabulous and innovative school at Ballerup, Denmark. My daughter loves her school very much .The principal and all the teachers work together to ensure all children are learning , at the same time playing and having fun. During online classes I have noticed that the teachers are encouraging the children to ask questions, use their imagination and express themselves.As a parent I am really very much happy to see my child improvement in her confidence as well as her love for learning.
Viking International School is a fantastic school. Though new, it has a made tremendous progress to build a goodwill and trust among the parents. Every day my son is looking forward to go to school. He very much enjoy his time in school and learning new things each and every day.
Great to have a school with focus on both STEM as well as language ( both English and Danish). Learning while having fun is what keeps me and my daughter both happy and satisfied!
