Description of the Project

Vandel Efterskole is known for its high educational standards and pedagogical practices, but also the proven ability to develop our students both socially and academically. The majority of students continue into higher education.

The foundations of the community at the school are built upon openness, friendliness, tolerance and shared responsibility. Participation in this mini-society aims to build relationships as well as further awareness and understanding of others.

Vandel puts emphasis on quality education. Everybody should be able to acquire new skills and develop academically within a challenging learning environment.
