At IHS we actually know how privileged we are. The scenery around our school is amazing. Right on the oceanfront, the forest and the city are very close by. The park area of our school spans to 28 acres and it ties our fantastic buildings beautifully together with the beach and the pier. Everyday the water invites you to surf, go boating, take the canoes out or even take a fresh morning dip.
The forest called Sønderskoven is located only 1 km south/west of our school, it's perfect for crossfit, triathlon and has tranquil trails for walking and running. If you are up for a city walk, the pretty pierfront takes you right by the castle to downtown, within 15 min. There are cozy cafés and of course a lot of awesome stores to spend some extra money in.
Sønderborg is a "young town" with a lot of different higher educations. An example could be the South danish University and Sønderborg Business college. 25% of the citizens in Sønderborg are below 30 years of age, it's considered the highest percentage in Denmark.
While visiting the South of Jutland, you will experience a very historic feel, a dynamic area with a lot of development and innovation close to Europe.

What is the student Union?
First of all it is an offer for former students, who wants to stay in touch with the school and the Folk school community around Denmark.
We have around 1000 members going all the way back to 1952. It's driven by voluntary work where all are welcome to contribute to help with the many different events and jobs there are within the already well functioning organ.
