Who we are

Our mission

By placing PLAY at the heart of education, ISB stimulates every child’s natural desire to LEARN.

Our vision

To cultivate a community of lifelong learners who will create a better world with courage, compassion and curiosity.


ISB opened its doors in August 2013 with just over 60 students in Kindergarten and Primary.  Today, we have close to 400 students, ages 3-16, spread across Kindergarten, Primary and Middle School.  About one third of our students are Danish, with the rest representing 50 nations around the world.

From the start, ISB’s goals have been ambitious, but achievable: first, to demonstrate the power of playful learning in a real-world setting, and second, to make Billund – the Capital of Children – an even more attractive place to settle, both for Danish and international families.

ISB’s playful curriculum is built upon the rigorous educational framework of the International Baccalaureate , which provides students with a solid and transferable foundation of academic skills. We are an accredited IB World School for both the Primary and Middle Years Programme.
