Who we are
Circle School is a private Danish primary school, it is a new holistic school for children from 0 to 9th grade. We meet the requirements of the Ministry of Education for primary schools. Our staff approaches teaching with individual syllabi that meet each child’s level of competence and areas of interest. We emphasize high professionalism combined with human development and most importantly, we underline that childhood itself is important. Being a child and going to school has to be enjoyed and to be a wonderful part of life. At Circle School, we emphasize that every child is seen and understood, and maintains a strong connection to his or her core.
In August 2021 we will expand to include an International Montessori line. The two lines (Danish and International) will be separate but will influence each other for the benefit of both.
