International School of Hellerup is a not-for-profit educational institution that is recognised by and subject to Danish law and receives a subsidy from the Danish State, however, the school relies on the monthly school fees to cover operating expenses. The school fee must be paid for all 12 months of the year, including July. It is important that new families provide the school with their child’s Danish CPR or CDR number and registered address (as stated on the yellow Health Insurance Card, “Sundhedskort”) before September 1st. The school fee for a student enrolled at ISH without a CPR number and for whom the school, therefore, does not receive a state subsidy is DKK 5.000,- per month. Please see the note for students starting school after August 31st for more information.
