Headed by principal Helene Bendorff Kristensen, a former IB coordinator, there is no doubt that Grenaa Gymnasium is serious about its international initiatives. Since initiating its IB course in 2003, the school has also become a member of Globale Gymnasier (Global HighSchools), a Danish network of schools that cooperate to empower students to become active learners with a global horizon. This means that both the school’s day students, who typically live in the local area, and the boarding students, many of whom are expat Danes or international students, are encouraged to engage in global activities and courses.
