‘We focus on the whole person’ – These are the words of Anders Boll Mikkelsen, principal at Staby Efterskole. The school accepts around 175 pupils but makes an effort to make every single one of them feel at home. The school building is originally from 1923, which gives a cosy ambiance in addition to plenty of new architectural features added to modernise the boarding school. By having a healthy environment and a high level of professionalism as their key values, the boarding school has managed to attract well-educated teachers that often stay there for several years, adding to the homely, familial atmosphere.
