School year and school organisation

School Organisation

Rysensteen Gymnasium, as well as all other Danish high schools, has a structure based on school classes of approximately 30 students. The students remain in the same class for all three years of the education. Some subjects are however taught across classes where students from one class are mixed with students from other classes of the same level.
