The dream of establishing the International School of Billund can be attributed to Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, Chairman of the Board of the LEGO Foundation, and owner of the LEGO Group. He first announced his thoughts about the school project in December 2011.
ISB opened its doors in August 2013 with just over 60 students evenly divided between Kindergarten and Primary School. Today, we have about 320 students spread across Kindergarten, Primary School and Middle School. ISB currently serves students ages 3 to 14, with plans to reach up to age 16 in the 2018-2019 school year.
Our students and staff hail from more than 50 countries around the world. Among those, the countries with the highest representation are Denmark, the US, Germany and the UK. About half of our families are connected to The LEGO Group; the rest are employed by a variety of international and Danish companies in the region.
