”Everyone takes off their jackets and hats”Sara Taflin, the Head of Education for Jensen Gymnasium
What is so special about your school?
– We are successful in creating a peaceful environment for students. We take away mobile phones, have a clear agenda on the board, have a seating plan decided by the teacher and the focus is on the studies. We take off our jackets and caps indoors, and we have a high percentage of qualified teachers.
Are the pupils allowed to wear whatever clothes they want?
– Yes, but in the classroom, everyone takes off their jackets and hats. It’s part of the training for life. You don’t wear outerwear in a meeting at work.
How many new positions will there be?
– We will recruit a principal. After that, we will start recruiting teachers and other staff. There will be about ten positions.
Are you going to choose an upper secondary school? There’s a digital upper secondary school fair taking place on November 19th-21st. There you can chat with 200 schools.
