About Odense International School

Odense International School opened in 2011 and operates with Henriette Hørlücks Skole, founded in 1870 in the heart of Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and now a knowledge-based hub for medicine, research, robots and drone technology. Our colleagues represent over 15 nationalities. OIS’s 220 students are comprised of 40+ nationalities whose parents are here due to both short- and long-term stays and are comprised of both internationals and Danish repatriates.  

Our educational offer is based on Cambridge Assessment International Education for students, starting in Primary 1 and ending with the 2-year long IGSCE programme for Secondary 10 and 11 students. Our Danish department has 470 students and offers a Semi-International programme, which provides additional English instruction from native English speakers. Students from both OIS and HHS share campuses, morning assembly, and class trips, as we believe in building the cross-cultural experience of all our students. 

If you are interested in becoming a part of our team, please send your cover letter and CV, preferably together in one PDF file, to office@hhskole.dk.
