Welcome to Dronninglund Gymnasium
Dronninglund Gymnasium is a Danish High School, situated on the island which forms the northern part of Jutland.
Dronninglund Gymnasium offers 3 years of secondary education to pupils between 16 and 19 years of age. Approximately 40% of youngsters in Denmark choose this form of secondary education.
It is considered to be the highest general secondary education within the Danish school system, giving access to e.g. universities after the final exams.
There are around 450 students in the 18 classes, 6 classes in each year.
The school is a public school financed by the state. It was founded in 1979, and the architecture of the school is quite modern.
Dronninglund Gymnasium is a well-functioning school with a creative milieu.
We try to encourage responsibility, democracy, and co-operation among all the groups at the school, qualities which we feel a school of such a small size as ours is well suited to further.
Music plays an important part in the life of the school, every third year a musical is performed with the participation of nearly half the students, and there are often exhibitions and other cultural arrangements, which are open to the local community.
We encourage and support international contacts at all levels, including international school partnerships such as Comenius and Erasmus+
The purpose for our staff when establishing contacts with schools outside Denmark is to give our students the possibility of getting to know young foreigners of their own age.
This helps our students to achieve a deeper insight and understanding of the culture, traditions, and the way of life of another country.
In Denmark Dronninglund Gymnasium is best known for its innovative work within the field of project work. During the school year teaching is organised so that students get a chance to work in self-governing groups on various crosscurricular projects.
The subjects taught at our school are:
