Based in Denmark’s second city of Aarhus, the 2017 European City of Culture, Aarhus Gymnasium is part of the AARHUS TECH family of educational institutions based in the Aarhus area. Aarhus Gymnasium offers both a Pre-IB programme and the IB Diploma Programme. The Pre-IB is a one-year educational programme, governed by the Danish Ministry of Education, and is for students who need additional schooling before entering the academically challenging and internationally recognised two-year IB Diploma Programme.
At Aarhus Gymnasium we pride ourselves on our diversity and the synergy that exists between a truly international environment and Danish educational and cultural traditions. Our teachers are subject specialists who all have at least a Master’s degree from university. Several of our teachers are IB examiners, others have published subject-specific works and we are proud of the diversity and high standards of our teaching staff. Our IB completion rates are very high and our exam results are consistently above the world average and among the best in Denmark. Our students successfully apply for university entrance in Denmark and in countries around the world and many of our alumni emphasise the school’s international environment and the IB Diploma Programme’s academic rigours as aspects that have helped them in their transition from their studies at Aarhus Gymnasium to further educational programmes.
The school is renowned for its democratic principles and active student council and Aarhus Gymnasium is characterised by active student participation, where influence and responsibility is given to students. Our location enables us to interact with the city of Aarhus and our IB students have contributed to many charitable, cultural and sporting events in Aarhus, not least through the many CAS-activities that our students have undertaken.
