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 the students from one class are mixed with students from other classes at the same level.
