You can choose to hang out in our lounge area and play board games, talk and have a cup of coffee or have a fun movie night together.

Here at the school we encourage extracurricular activities. Therefore we ask students to create and participate in social committees, to ensure that everyone joins in and invests in meaningful activities. A committee could be based on the love of knitting, soccer, music or something completely different, based on the interests of the students and carried out by their motivation. 

The school is located in the town of Rønde, which is surrounded by beautiful forests, hills and coastlines and it invites you to take a nice run or a walk alone or with friends. Rønde also has a main street with stores and cafés and its very own famous castle ruin from the middle ages located outside of town. 

Should you and your fellow friends from school wish to experience the buzz of the big city, Aarhus, the second biggest city in Denmark, is only a 45 minutes bus ride away. Many of our students go shopping in Aarhus, visit the many cultural sights, go to sporting events or have a fun night out with each other on the weekends.
