Message from Head of School


mr passo welcome (2)Thank you for your interest in International School Ikast-Brande. I am proud to be the educational leader of this dynamic and inclusive learning community in the heart of Midtjylland. Our learning community consists of a welcoming and warm group of students, teachers, parents, sponsors and board members.

As a school, it is important to us that each child is acknowledged and appreciated for his or her individual contribution to the continuous learning process, which is evident in the diverse fabric of the school. Students at ISIB are celebrated for excellence, commitment and hard work.

Academic excellence is the measure of every good school. We define academic excellence as the balance between achieving the best possible grades, and the ability to positively protect one’s socio-emotional well-being.

At ISIB we understand and honour the diversity of learners by ensuring and guiding instructional practices that take into account the different learning styles, multiple intelligences and academic gaps that students bring with them. Differentiated instruction is the key to a nurturing and meaningful learning experience. Constant opportunities for assessments, feedback, and meaningful reflection are vital signs of our learning community.

The Cambridge International Curriculum, combined with the International Primary Curriculum is our point of academic and socio-emotional reference. We understand curriculum as an effective and powerful tool used and adapted for the benefit of the child.

Our teachers are excellent and modern practitioners with the ability to relate to students and facilitate instruction to a culturally diverse group of students. We benefit from the experience of teachers from all across the globe.

Our parents are motivated and evolved individuals willing to share their time and multiple experiences and talents for the greater good of this learning community.

Our student body is the heart of this community. You will find smiling faces and respectful young individuals enjoying the challenges of school life.

We welcome you to this fantastic community. Hope to see you soon!
