An overall disappointing experience, where it's clear the administration is more interested in collecting fees than in the welfare and happiness of the students. Poor communication, actual lack of follow-up from the school health nurse, broken and damaged playground equipment that isn't repaired, as well as dead plants surrounding the school. The teachers try, but can only do so much to make up for a lack of interest on behalf of the senior administrative staff to develop community or improve any situation. Bullying was an issue despite a long-winded speech about the school being a safe place, with the responsibility being placed on the students to resolve issues rather than working with them or communicating.

Great medium sized private school with a truly international studentship. Teachers are mostly experienced and coverage of subjects is very good. Hours are 8:30am till 3:30pm plus ex-curricular studies/activities till 5:00pm

We have really enjoyed being part of the ISH school community for the past 3 years. The teachers are dedicated, skilled and very caring. It also has an exciting new playground which my kids love! I would recommend this school

Learning Support Services in the ISH (International School of Hellerup) is absolutely appalling and dreadful! Any type of learning support that a student is required is not followed up on, even a smaller intervention. I have 2 children in that school and I am constantly in communication with school about my kid's need (acknowledged by and supported with medical reports), WITHOUT any progress. WORST, some educational interventions provided to my children have actually never taken place (and I found about this one year after). We are now looking for other, better school!

My family had a really bad experience with this school with 2 of our 3 children. They were labeled as difficult/naughty/disturbed, when in fact after intensive psychological testing that my husband and I initiated it turned out both children have severe ADHD and Autism. The school kept increasing the fees to accommodate our children’s difficulties to the point it was breaking our family financially. The extra assistance offered made no difference and both children’s self esteem hit rock bottom with one developing OCD from stress. Skip forward 2 years, all 3 children are in the Danish school system (that allows children to be children - more play time, a relaxed learning environment and realistic expectations of children’s behaviors) and my kids have never been happier. After describing some of our experiences to one of our new Danish schools, they started to refer to our previous school (International School of Hellerup) as ‘the previous trauma’ and to be completely honest, that is exactly what is was - a traumatic experience for my husband, myself and our 2 eldest children. I do not recommend this school. I seriously regret changing from our local Danish Børnehave to this ‘school’ (for want of a better word).
