Transition to the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO)


Esbjerg International School is a candidate school* for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that Esbjerg International School believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit

Year 11 graduates from EIS have been accepted to three local Danish gymnasiums, including one of which offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
