Each grade level has between 10 and 30 students in it, and our students undertake many activities together.
Our students come from many different backgrounds. Most are from local families, while around 20% are from families that are only temporarily in Denmark because of their employment or business. These can be families from elsewhere in Denmark, or from outside of Denmark.
As a school with a commitment to international-mindedness, MIS helps foreign students stay in touch with their own language and culture, while immersing them in an English speaking school environment with a distinct international flair.
MIS High School currently offers French literature courses for native speakers, and can offer other languages as required.
The high school Diploma is a two-year course that includes mathematics, at least one advanced science course, a humanities subject and two languages, one of which is a literature course.
The Diploma demands reasonable proficiency in English, and we recommend that students from overseas spend Grade 10 with us as a pre- Diploma year during which they follow a full course of study at the school, and use this time to improve their English and become accustomed to our style of working.
All Diploma students must study a second language, but many of MIS's graduates are awarded the Bilingual Diploma in recognition of their very high level of proficiency.
Our school Counselor is dedicated to helping all MIS students through the process of applying to college and universities both within Denmark and overseas.
Copenhagen has outstanding colleges for science, engineering, technology and medical sciences in particular, as well as the full range of career disciplines.
MIS sets high expectations for individual achievement.
In the Middle and High School we work in English, and have a major emphasis on science, which is taught in a practical manner by trained science specialists.
MIS students receive more science teaching than at any other high school in the region. We also continue to build on our High School mathematics program.
