Welcome to Odense International School

Whether you live in the region or are planning to relocate your family to the fairytale island of Funen in southern Denmark, we hope to assist you with both a great educational offer for your children and a pleasant stay in Denmark.

Odense International School is the International Department of Henriette Hørlücks School. Children with backgrounds from more than 40 nations attend our school, with exam results among Denmark’s top ten annually. All lessons are taught in English.

We are a certified Cambridge International Examinations Centre and believe in enquiry-based learning and active students whose learning needs, both socially and academically, are met by dedicated and professional staff.

We not only seek to assist students in achieving academic excellence, but we also aim to provide them with a safe and inclusive learning environment that encourages awareness of global issues and a natural curiosity for inquiry. OIS aims to provide high-quality, international education for children ages 5–16.

This quirky and beautifully inspiring physical environment reflects the idea that the path to discovery could start anywhere—in front of a sculpture on your way to class or with wonderment over a stuffed wild boar on the grand piano at morning assembly.

Our teachers recognise the value of providing students with opportunities to make discoveries in their lessons. Teaching is inquiry-based, skill-focused, and founded on Cambridge International Examinations’ recommendations.

OIS students participate in morning assembly and other activities with the Danish department at Henriette Hørlücks School. HHS, established in 1870, has a proud tradition of providing an international learning environment with early introduction to languages.
