At this moment DIS consist of 16 primary schools, the Dutch International Primary Schools (DIPS) and 13 secondary schools, the Dutch International Secondary Schools (DISS). The schools are located in and around larger cities throughout the country.
International education in the Netherlands is meant for internationally mobile families. This includes students with Dutch passports returning from a stay abroad or are planning to move abroad as well as expats children with foreign passports who are temporarily moving to the Netherlands with their families.
The aim of DIS
The principle aim of DIS is to provide your child with such education that they are prepared optimally for either the transition to English language education abroad or a possible transition to full Dutch education. An additional aim is to provide your child with adequate knowledge of the Dutch language to enable them to participate in and be a part of Dutch society.
Dutch International Schools stand for Quality, Community and Care. Our education is of the highest quality, and we are committed to creating a safe and caring community for your child.
At DIS, we want to prepare all children for success in tertiary education and life beyond in the world. Therefore, our schools offer education of a high quality, that complies with international standards as well as the demands of the Dutch school inspection.
All children have different starting points and all parents have different expectations. Within DIS it’s not about passing a certain test or exam, rather about learning the skills to be an active and engaged global citizen who views the world around them with empathy.
We have a joint mission: to serve the international community. We do so by offering a truly international programme. By offering a curriculum with an international focus on teaching and learning, not dominated by any national system.”
