About Copenhagen International School (CIS)


Copenhagen International School (CIS) is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the IB Primary Years Programme, the IB Middle Years Programme and the IB Diploma Programme. With more than 4,000 IB schools worldwide, the education that we offer is globally recognized and easily transferable.

CIS has been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges in the U.S. for the past thirty years. CIS is committed to excellence in the education and the personal growth of every student. Our students learn in a multicultural community where each person is respected regardless of nationality, race, or religion. Students discover the world, its people, and its cultures through direct experience. Through play, study, co-curricular activities and the relationships they form, students at CIS learn to appreciate their own strengths and to respect differences rather than fear them. Combined with academic rigor, this experience extends outside the classroom and equips students for success and global citizenship beyond school.

We take very seriously our mission that states that together at Copenhagen International School we are 'learning to build community' both locally and internationally.

No consistent teachers in 5 years. Lots of supply teachers and long term sick. Also there was no understanding or acceptance and a lot of parent blaming when my daughter was undiagnosed autistic. She had a lot of social challenges that I was officially blamed for ( the school nurse write to social services twice about me and both times the complaint was discounted and social services told me it was ok). Upon diagnosis back in UK and more understanding schools I have found out that her symptoms were standard for a female with ASD and most local authorities and schools here have a list of such symptoms. This was never brought up by any staff at CIS and the amount of parent blame I received ( ‘she is making a scene get her out/ move her) grabbing her off me when she was holding onto my hair and pulling her away screaming while being told ‘No! You are here now’ and worst of all the third letter to social services by head of student services ‘when her dad drops her off it is painless’ yet again, another common sign of ASD being separation anxiety with the primary carer. I reconcile myself now knowing I was right, I parented right and also got her the right diagnosis and support but not without that school delaying her progress and my mental health for a couple of years. Stay away if you have an SN child.

Before being introduced to CIS, I thought this (more expensive) school, would be my last choice, but after experiencing their excellence, I realised that it is 'the real thing' and worth every øre. Our son will forever reap the benefits of their excellent IB programme.

Bait and switch. This school has scholarship and they do not tell people how many scholarship they are giving . They pretty much gives everyone a 85% off tuition to "encourage" them to apply so that they can charge them a 2500DKK application fee. Then they will tell you that you do not get the scholarship but you can get in if you pay full price. I should have asked more about the scholarship before letting my child apply and I would not recommend anyone to this school.

Management of the school since the move to Nordhavn has been shaky but my experience with the teachers was always good. Simply cooking wasn't the best either, but if you're not satisfied with the food at campus you can just make some at home and bring it to school. As a C.I.S alumni it's disappointing seeing so many negative reviews of the school when I personally had such a great time. My sincerest thanks to my high school teachers for pushing me and the rest of the class through the tough periods of the I.B and being there for support when we needed it, despite their schedules being so full. Unfortunately the I.B isn't for everyone and I had to learn that the hard way, but it isn't fair to blame the entire C.I.S staff for my results. I look back on my memories at C.I.S as some of my best times with great friends and outstanding teachers. Thank you C.I.S. Sincerely, Class of 2018.

Horrible school. Went there for 4 years and barely learnt anything. Most of the teachers only care about the smart kids so the ones that NEED help don’t actually get any help. Seriously even I.S.H. Is a better school then this, at least I learnt something in I.S.H.
