Kolding Gymnasium or Kolding Gymnasium, HF-kursus og IB World School is a Danish gymnasium, which, aside from the standard gymnasium courses, also offers the HF programme and the IB Diploma Programme. Kolding Gymnasium was founded in 1542 by Dorothea of Brandenburg, Queen of Denmark, and re-located to new buildings in 1975, where it remains today. In 2002, the school adopted the IBDP as one of its main types of education. In 2006, the school suffered extensive water damage, forcing the students to stay home for a week. This incident forced some of the students to take lessons during the Danish winter vacation instead of, to reach the amount of lessons required before the academic year ended.
Since then, the school has undergone a huge amount of on-going repair; a new auditorium has been built, the facade of the school has been renovated, and a new knowledge centre, to house the school library, has been built.
