Just an ordinary Danish high school. And yet...
We are excited to welcome you to Birkerød Gymnasium
At BG we speak more than 50 different languages.
But we have room for one more; your language, your personal voice.
With the whole world as your backyard and endless opportunities for self development in your front yard BG is the right choice for you who are curious about your future.
We offer both IB, STX, HF and boarding school and therefore dare to boast of being the most diverse place north of Copenhagen.
For us, high school is a lot about mathematics, but most of all about people.
There is room for everyone here, and we provide the space for you to find yourself.
We hope to see you at the school!

The IB Diploma Programme
Are you an international student looking to study in Denmark? Or are you a Danish student looking to study in an international environment? Then the IB Diploma Programme may be just right for you. Birkerød Gymnasium has a strong profile in Science, Arts and sports, and we are known for delivering high results as well as a welcoming community where students from all over the world feel at home.
A world of opportunities
Staying active is always a good idea. When the school day is over and the books have been put away, there is ample opportunity to head out to one of several green spaces or taking part in one of our many sports activities. We currently offer handball, soccer, badminton, basketball, volleyball and ultimate tournaments. Each of these activities has a BG school team, where players train together in the lead-up to tournaments, which we play against other schools in Denmark. Can't find your favorite sport? We would love to help you set up a team.
BG has a strong science profile and almost half of our students choose to specialize in science. BG has recieved many accolades, such as the prestigious School of Science of the Year in 2019, and we work together with Danish science universities. If you love to challenge yourself, you will have ample opportunity to participate in academic competitions such as Danish Championship in science, Physics Olympiad or the Drug Hunter competition.
Student Council & Morning Meetings
As as student, you can have a lot of influence on how we shape school life and how your and your friends educations should look. We have a strong student council and regular morning meetings for the whole school, where you can follow along and share your opinion. Additionally, BG is a Red Cross High School that works to take responsibility for problems both locally and globally and help find solutions.
Culture & Art
Get inspired and unleash your creativity at our many creative events. At BG, we hold everything from photo marathons, where students compete to capture the best snapshot of life at school, to artistic day, where we transform the school into a creative masterpiece. Additionally, more than 100 students and teachers work together to put on our biennial big BG musical. Do you have an idea for our next creative feature? We hope so!
Birkerød Student Center
We hold study cafes several times a week, where you can receive help and support with assignments. You can always stop by the study center and use the quiet surroundings to immerse yourself in your studies. There are always teachers on hand, so all you have to do is show up. With us, you avoid dusty, dark libraries, but get a bright, attractive facility, with books in good condition, and access to a wide range of search portals and digital tools.
One of the core elements of the IB Diploma Programme is extracurricular activity. It is spread out into three disciplines: Creativity, Activity, and Service (thus, CAS). CAS experiences can happen both on the BG campus and in the local community.

Why choose our school?
Our students may be very different, but they have one thing in common. They are passionate about their field. Whether you are into sports, science, music, or something else entirely, you can expect to be part of an ambitious community.
We offer STX, HF, and the IB track. So, here you will meet friends from both just around the corner and from afar.
A Global Perspective
BG is a school that wants to open doors to students both academically and physically to broaden their view of the world. This can only be done by creating an open, diverse, and international environment. It is a natural part of BG that we speak many different languages, accommodate many cultures, and celebrate diversity.
BG is a community filled with life, an appetite for learning, drama, music, sports and social activities and events. Imagine a football field filled with sprinting feet or a BIGMUN conference in which students come together from the whole world. BG is not just a place where you arrive, take your classes, and return home. BG is a place, where you form new friendships, interests and talents. At BG, you recieve an education.
