Aarhus has 46 ordinary schools and two special schools. The vast majority of our schools offer teaching from grade 0 to grade 9.

  • Grades 0 to 3 are the early years. Grades 4 to 6 are the middle years and grades 7 to 9 are the final years
  • In grades 0 to 3, you can get childcare in a school-based leisure-time facility (skolefritidsordning, SFO)
  • From grade 4, your child can go to a free-time club (fritidsklub)
  • From grade 7, your child can go to a youth club (ungdomsklub) and youth school (ungdomsskole) – until the child turns 18

Grade 10 is non-compulsory. The teaching takes place at one of three schools with a 10th grade.

There are also 16 private and free schools in Aarhus.
