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.

Dear Amit,
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.
Kari Doyle
VIS Principal

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.

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!
