Welcome to WISC

Waldorf International School Copenhagen

WISC is a not-for-profit international school with a distinct educational vision.
WISC is the international department of Byens Steinerskole, which is a Waldorf school established in 2019. It is recognised by and subject to Danish law and receives a subsidy from the Danish state.

At a Waldorf school, each child is daily challenged on an intellectual, creative, artistic and social level – head, heart and hands. We, therefore, offer a wide range of subjects, which each child can follow at their own individual level.

A 100 years after the founding of the first Waldorf school, there are now around 1200 Waldorf schools, 2000 Waldorf kindergartens, many teacher training institutions and hundreds of centres that provide remedial education to thousands of children in over 60 countries.
Waldorf education is the fastest-growing progressive pedagogy in the world. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) states that the Waldorf movement’s “ideals and ethical principles…correspond to those of UNESCO.”

Teaching for the mind, heart and hand

Byens Steinerskole is a green and sustainable free school with focus on nature, presence and curiosity:

  • There is a connection between all subjects so that the children experience a teaching
    that makes sense
  • We integrate art and music in the daily teaching
  • Movement is an integral part of the teaching – use of the body boosts creative thinking
  • We are working with our hands in every subject – working with the hands is crucial for
    mental development
  • We are working actively to ensure that all pupils across all grades have good and close
    relationships
    – community and cohesion are the bearing principles
  • We move our teaching out of the classroom and into the nature – sustainability and
    connection to nature is important at all grades
  • We have a clear position on the use of digital media in the school and we are digital-free
    until 7th grade
  • We are using many forms of evaluation to ensure that students experience professional,
    social and personal development. The school is grade- and test-free
