More about the International School Haarlem
The International School Haarlem is a member of the Dutch International Schools. These schools receive government funding and therefore operate within the framework of the Dutch educational system. They differ in this way from private international and foreign education facilities.
The Dutch International Schools possess several distinguishing qualities in comparison with these other institutions, such as an active international character.
At Dutch International Schools, we want to prepare all children for success in tertiary education and life beyond in the world. Therefore, these schools offer education of a high quality, that complies with international standards as well as the demands of the Dutch school inspection.
The Dutch International Schools use English to teach their international curricula and are affiliated with regular Dutch schools. The class sizes will be around 20 students per group.
Even though the government subsidy does not cover all costs, The Dutch International Schools can charge relatively low school fees in comparison with private international and foreign educational facilities.
All Dutch International Schools have the willingness and expertise to cope with students with a wide variety of cultures and native languages. Understanding and respect are important key aspects.
The schools work with an international teaching staff
The class teachers at the International School Haarlem will all be English native speakers. They come from different countries in the world.
There is a dynamic admissions system; students may come and go during the entire school year.
The new Haarlem International School opened its doors in September 2017. The school offers an international curriculum to specific groups of students. The school is located at Schreveliusstraat 27, 2014 XP in Haarlem.
The traditional school building has been used for educational purposes in the last century. The history of the building goes back to 1915.
We share one building with the ECL (Eerste Christelijke Lyceum), but we are two separate organisations and use separate entrances and recreation areas / playgrounds.
