INSPIRING AND ENGAGING LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Since 2005, Egaa Gymnasium has offered an inspiring and engaging learning environment for students and teachers, alike. Our staff consists of approximately 100 employees of which around 80 are teachers whose primary concern is educating our student body of over 700 students.
We are proud to offer a very dynamic, democratic and challenging learning environment for all of our students. An interesting feature of our school is its architectural lay-out – our building was designed to encourage group work and more modern teaching methodologies which are cornerstones of the ministerial reform of the Danish secondary school system of 2005.
As such, we enjoy teaching and learning in spacious classrooms as well as numerous large and small group study areas, including various nooks and crannies throughout the school, to facilitate both individual and group learning.
All of these various learning environments provide the space necessary for motivating, student-driven learning processes involving e.g. Cooperative Learning principles. State-of-the-art information technology and high-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the school and allows us to bring the world into our classrooms and to share our ideas with the rest of the world with ease.
Educational field trips and cooperative efforts with local businesses and other institutions of learning (from local elementary schools to other secondary schools to nearby Aarhus University) are an integrated part of our curriculum.
We make every effort to build bridges between our school, the local community and the world at large – all for the educational benefit of our students.
