Presentation of IJG
Ingrid Jespersens Gymnasieskole is a self-governing institution with a primary school and an upper secondary school (Gymnasium). Our Gymnasium consists of 4 classes on each year, a total of 300 students.
At IJG we value a high professional level, creative activities and nurture and care for each student.
The size of IJG makes it possible to create a close and safe student environment. The foundation for this is a well-functioning teamwork between teachers and students, as well as a close relationship between students across the different year groups.
Tolerance and intellectual freedom are key concepts at IJG and we consider the professional and personal development of the students as equally important.
