Code of conduct

The International - Academy and Boarding School of Denmark will be your home and as such we want all of our students to feel safe and welcome in this multicultural environment. Our students come from a variety of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds with various expectations and cultural norms. The International wants to ensure an open and tolerant learning environment, free from prejudice, where everyone can feel at home regardless of his or her nationality or personal background.

A mini-society

In any group or small society, where people have to live and function together in a safe environment, it is necessary to have common guidelines and rules that all the members adhere to. The same is true at The International.
