International School of Hellerup expanding to a new campus in Østerbro
We are happy to announce that due to us reaching full capacity at Rygårds Allé we will be moving the MYP5 and DP students to a new campus. The new campus will be situated in the Østerbro district of Copenhagen on Præstøgade, with classes beginning in August of the 2020-2021 academic year.
Students and parents that have been with us since before our move to Hellerup in 2015 may remember the Østerbro campus, as it is where the school was first located when it opened in 2009.
The new campus will host exclusively the MYP5 and Diploma Programme students, allowing them to have their own environment to develop both academically and socially. We are excited for this new chapter in the school’s development and believe that this decision will allow us to enhance the learning environment for all of our students.

ISH AT A GLANCE
We provide a continuum of international education across all grade levels through the three main IB programmes (PYP, MYP, DP).
Being a medium-sized school allows us to offer a wide range of academic and extracurricular opportunities to our students while remaining a community where everyone knows each other.
We are located in the beautiful residential area of Hellerup, which is easily accessible by bus and train.
Our small classes enable our teachers to know each student and their skills, strengths and learning styles well.
70+ Nationalities in the Student Body
Our students learn in a multicultural community where each person is respected regardless of nationality, race or religion.
