The IDEALS in our school

Herlufsholm School aims to be a Danish school of world-class quality with values and and pedagogical principles rooted in the Danish cultural heritage. Herlufsholm Skole upholds the Danish tradition of being open-minded towards global aspects. Our values are based on a solid academic foundation and include responsibility, tradition, leadership, a strong upbringing and being engaged. There is a basic tenet of personal development and democracy both in the school ethos, but also in the Danish national curriculum offered and the IB. As such, we offer unique strengths in the areas of leadership and democracy.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Through Round Square we are able to view our educational practices in an international context. We have learned that much of what we already do in Denmark and at Herlufsholm, belongs to a set of globalized educational practices which provide the best context for students to grow and develop into responsible and engaged young people. The exposure to opportunities in the areas of service and adventure continue to animate and inspire our practices.
