We enable young people to change the world through their passions

Fryshuset primary school is a unique school that combines the students “passions” (basketball, dance, music, skate, soccer, etc.) with academic education. Through practicing their passion, the students feel more motivated and push themselves to excel in the academic field, while developing their social skills and sense of being active members in society.  Fryshuset is seen as a hub for young changemaking in Scandinavia with the vision: “We enable young people to change the world through their passions.” All teachers and staff must sign off to this before they start working at Fryshuset, and are expected to live these values and act accordingly.

The school is only closed one day per year (Christmas Eve) and is otherwise open day and night for young people and students that want a place to hang out, practice their sport or meet a role model or parent for guidance and advice. 

Fryshuset is not only a school; it is often referred to as the largest youth center in Scandinavia. Above all it is a vision based on the conviction that encouragement, confidence, responsibility and understanding are necessary in order to enable young people to develop their innate abilities and find their way into society.
