About Us

A world within a school

Bjørn's International School is an independent international school established in 1967 in Copenhagen (Denmark). We offer a holistic, values-driven, and international educational experience to a student body of over 50 different nationalities


Our vision at BIS is to provide:

  •  a  positive supporting environment where students have the opportunity to achieve successful results together;

  • challenges to develop individual potential and strengthen self-confidence;

  •  empathy, harmony and respect for all in our multicultural classes;

  •  a network in which parents, students and teachers co-operate to achieve the best for our children.

A societal microcosm

Bjørn's International School is a multicultural space where different languages, values and belief systems coexist and each person is respected regardless of religion, nationality or ethnicity. Our fees allow us to welcome students from all different kinds of economic backgrounds.


The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) commitment of BIS is wholly aligned and is integral to our work. We aim to create opportunities for students to learn with and from one another, and we strive to create a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and has equal access to opportunities.

Teaching & Learning

165 students with a 10:1 student-teacher ratio.  

A wide range of learning opportunities: Each class group consists of two-year levels, allowing students to optimise their learning and meet their educational needs. This has proven to be an advantage since we receive students from many different countries with diverse educational experiences. 

We don’t say that we offer Global tailored education merely because of being based in a gorgeous early 20th century building that was originally conceived as a textile factory. Being a small school allows us to offer individualised education in a context where everyone knows each other.  Because of our size, structure and inter-departmental cooperation we are able to support newly-arrived students in making progress with their language acquisition skills in Danish & English and develop positive peer-to-peer interactions which supports students’ integration process and the establishment of new social relationships.  


Our qualified teaching staff comes with a wide variety of international experiences and combines a strong academic foundation with an empathetic, child-centred, multicultural approach.  You can read more about them in the section “Staff”.
