Code of Conduct for AARHUS GYMNASIUM STX/HTX/HF/IB World School

Academic Behaviour

At Aarhus Gymnasium we expect our students to participate actively in the learning process.

  • Attendance at all lessons is mandatory. Students must arrive at lessons on time. Reasons for any absence must be provided by students as quickly as possible. Students must contact the school (i.e. their student counsellor or the Pre-IB or IB Coordinator) if they know in advance that they will be absent from school.
  • Constructive and active participation in all lessons is required of all students.
  • Homework must be completed properly on time and is a fundamental requirement of being an active student.
  • Written assignments must be completed to the best of students’ abilities and handed in on time. Failure to do so will result in absence for the assignment and, at the teacher’s discretion, exclusion from class until the assignment is completed.
  • Computers, devices and social media may only be used in class if allowed by teachers and for educational purposes only.
  • As an IB World School, Aarhus Gymnasium is committed to principles of academic honesty: Students’ work must be their own and plagiarism will not be tolerated.
  • Students are responsible for managing their time so that schoolwork is completed properly.

Social Environment

Aarhus Gymnasium is a school founded on mutual respect, kindness and openness and students must respect the other students and the staff of the school.

  • Bullying, violence or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated. This also applies when using social media or other forms of communication.
  • Students may only take or publish pictures of another student or staff member with the consent of that person.
  • The instructions of teachers and staff must be respected.
  • Students must respect the beliefs and choices of others.
  • Aarhus Gymnasium is a school where religion is considered a private matter. Religious rituals may only be practised alone (i.e. not in groups) and in places where no one else is present.    

Physical Environment

At Aarhus Gymnasium the staff work hard to create pleasant physical and aesthetic surroundings. In return, we expect that students take responsibility for ensuring that the school and its environs are treated with respect.

  • School property, furniture and equipment must be treated with due care at all times.
  • Eating in class is not permitted and students have a responsibility to tidy up after themselves and to encourage others to do the same.
  • Classrooms must be left in a tidy condition after each lesson. Rubbish must be removed, desks returned to their correct places and chairs put up so that floors can be cleaned.
  • Students must help to create a quiet working environment in classrooms, halls and in the canteen.
  • Aarhus Gymnasium is a no-smoking school and students must adhere to the school’s smoking policy.
  • Narcotics of any form are not allowed in the school.
  • The consumption of alcohol is forbidden during ordinary school hours and may only be consumed in conjunction with special events and at the discretion of the Head of School.
  • Vehicles must be parked in the marked bays and vehicles travelling to and from the school must be driven in a duly considerate manner.
  • Students are expected to be appropriate ambassadors for the school during school-related activities outside of school property.


Breaching the code of conduct may result in a warning, a suspension or, in extreme or repeated cases, expulsion.

Students are financially responsible for their actions.
