About Institut Sankt Joseph Copenhagen (ISJ)

Institut Sankt Joseph Copenhagen is situated in the beautiful Østerbro district of Copenhagen, directly across from the United States Embassy and only minutes from the heart of the city and the coast. The school’s campus has a large main building with four floors, an annex building for kindergarten and after-school clubs, a theatre and a large gymnasium. Institut Sankt Joseph was established November 17, 1858 by the St. Joseph Sisters Society, which governed the school until March of 1976.

The school was started as an all girl’s academy, and stayed that way until 1968, when boys were also admitted. Institut Sankt Joseph Copenhagen’s main building was built in 1914-15, and in 1928 the building underwent a major expansion, wherein a physics and biology lab were added. The building was designed by architect Christian Mandrup-Poulsen, who also designed the sisters’ convent, and Jeanne d’Arc School.

Dårlig oplevelse med klasseproblemer der aldrig blev taget fat i. Vi fik at vide fra skoleinspektører at vi bare kunne skifte hvis vi havde et problem. Vi var så ikke de eneste der havde fået det at vide. Mange af lærerne er meget søde, og de har en viseinspektør der er meget god og hjælpsom :-) Jeg skiftede desværre dog, og jeg kunne mærke at jeg var meget lang bagud fagligt. Men jeg fortryder langt fra at gå der. De har gode katolske værdier, kan ikke anbefale at være i min situtation, men det kan være at tingene er blevet bedre :-)
