Byens Steinerskole is an independent school, approved by the Ministry of Children and Education. The school is recognized to have an international department, where the language of instruction is English.
Approval is granted if the school or one of its divisions primarily caters to children with foreign parents, who live in Denmark and remain in Denmark for a shorter space of time.
We welcome children from all over the world, regardless of their cultural or religious backgrounds.
The distinguishing feature of our school is our holistic educational approach: Physical education, handicrafts, the arts, and respect for the natural world and each other are of equal importance to proficiency in mathematics and literacy. This balanced educational approach is what we call learning with head, heart, and hands.
Our teaching and curriculum are based on the Waldorf curriculum, but also fulfill the requirements and goals set by the Ministry of Children and Education. This means that the learning objectives of the curriculum are in line with the education provided in a Danish public school.
