Copenhagen



What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

Most families attend CIS (Copenhagen International School). There are a couple of others, but I don't have any info on them. CIS is opening a new school building in late 2016 closer to the embassy. It will contain pre-K through 12th grade. For the most part, it's a good school. Communication is not their strong point. There is an expectation of high parent involvement, which is difficult for those working full time. They run after school activities that you can sign your child up for on your own dime, and they have many choices. - Jul 9, 2016
No personal experience. There are three in town. Most embassy kids go to CIS, but there are two other English speaking school in the city as well as a French school. - Feb 8, 2014
I did not have any experience with the International Schools, but have heard good things about both Copenhagen International school and Rygaards. - Jul 22, 2011
