Mariagerfjord Gymnasium is a progressive 6th form college with 90 teachers and approximately 700 students. In a stimulating environment and a relaxing atmosphere, our school prepares the students for university and similar institutions of higher education with due regard to each student's individual talents.
Mariagerfjord Gymnasium provides three programmes of Upper Secondary Education:
- a three-year programme leading to the Upper Secondary School Leaving Examination (Studentereksamen - STX)
- a three-year programme leading to the Upper Secondary School Leaving Technical Examination (Studentereksamen – HTX)
- and a two-year programme leading to the Higher Preparatory Examination (Højere Forberedelseseksamen - HF)
The programmes emphasize a broad theoretical education of high academic standard and offer a wide variety of subjects: Danish, English, German, French, Spanish, Latin, Ancient and Modern History, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Psychology, Economics, Social Studies, Geography, Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Computing, Music, Art, Design and Physical Education. And in addition, the extracurricular activities: Music, Art and Sports.
Throughout the school year there are a wide range of activities for both students and teachers such as pedagogical seminars, the students' drama production, the annual school dance, the graduation party, and of course the extensive unofficial social activities organised by the students themselves. The teachers are encouraged to constantly improve their pedagogical and professional skills by attending a large variety of in-service training programmes. About once a month all the teachers participate in a staff meeting to discuss the practical, administrative and pedagogical matters of the school. The democratic rights of the students are guaranteed by the students' council.
It is of great importance to Mariagerfjord Gymnasium that we achieve our ultimate educational goal: that our students acquire substantial academic training and develop human abilities which enable them to become full-scale members of our democratic society.
