Give your child the best possible opportunity to succeed in further education
In 2022 another research project looked into the effects of being an efterskole student in the 10th grade. The results showed, that students from an efterskole have a 85% chance of finishing the danish gymnasium / IB program, compared to 65% of those who finished 10th grade at a public school.
