North Zealand International School

Where learning is in focus

Welcome to North Zealand International School

North Zealand International School (NIS) is a part of the private school "Nordsjællands Grundskole og Gymnasium" which encompasses a Preschool, Primary, Secondary and a High School.

Our school is situated in beautiful Hørsholm, only 26 minutes by car from Copenhagen. This geographical area offers both stunning landscapes, close to the coast of North Zealand, significant cultural sites and a peaceful everyday life for a family.

NIS is a small private international school for children from the ages of 3 to 16. Our 40 teaching staff provide a unique and stimulating teaching environment for the 350 learners who attend our school. All of our multinational teaching staff are highly qualified, most of them studied in the UK or America. The language of instruction is English.

NIS is the only IPC accredited member school in Denmark. We offer the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) in the primary school which is benchmarked against the National Curriculum of England and Wales. This amazing curriculum allows us to provide very creative and engaging teaching and learning experiences for our students. The IPC is taught in international schools all over the world.

For students joining us for secondary school, our students learn through Cambridge Assessment International Education. Cambridge is rigorous programme which stretches and challenges our students to prepare them for the next stage.

My passion is learning. Learning happens in a classroom where students are motivated and teachers teach in a way that meets the needs of those students. At North Zealand International School, ensuring the learners learn efficiently and effectively is my top priority”.

Karen Bøttger, Head of School, North Zealand International School (NIS)
"NIS learners are active in shaping their own learning, strive to reach their potential and aim to be respectful, responsible global citizens of tomorrow."

Our shared vision is supported by the IPC Personal Goals in the Primary School and the IB Learner Profile in the Secondary School.
