We consistently work with developing our methods, our students and our school.

At the moment we have exchange programmes with schools in Kenya, India, Serbia and Belgium. We are always open to suggestions from students and possible future project partners.
Together, students and staff create a positive atmosphere. We focus on mentorship, fundamental values and student support. We encourage, as well as challenge, each other and our main goal is that each and every student will be supported in his or her learning development.
The very first Donnergymnasium was established in 1998 at Klintehamn, Gotland. Two years later Donnergymnasiet Göteborg opened and quickly became one of the most popular schools in Göteborg.
