Præstø Privatskole is a private independent school receiving government subsidy, located in Præstø 1 hour drive south from Copenhagen. We are located 100m from a fjord a few kilometers from the Baltic Sea. Only 12 minutes by bus to the train station. Præstø is surrounded by a very beautiful landscape.
The School has one class on every grade level, from pre-school class (5-6 years old) to the 9th grade (15-16 years-old). There are 200 pupils and 14 teachers, 5 pedagogues, TAP staff and one headmaster. most of the pupils live locally. The school is run as a private independent school for primary and lower secondary education under the Danish Act on Private Independent Schools (Friskoleloven). We are still a new school, searching for and developing our international profile, combined with a strong academic profile.
All our pupils are taught English (from 1st grade) and German and French (from 5th grade). We put great emphasis on language acquisition and learning foreign languages at as an early age as possible. We encourage our pupils to study and travel in other European countries.
Our staff are open-minded and well-prepared to work side by side with volunteers.
