Home Education Children's Education List of international schools in the Netherlands
Last update on April 19, 2019

Expatica’s up-to-date guide includes a full list of international schools in the Netherlands, including American and British schools in the Netherlands plus international schools in Amsterdam, The Hague and around the country.

Expat parents generally consider international schools in the Netherlands (internationale scholen in Nederland) to enable their child to continue in the same curriculum or native language. Although immersing children into Dutch education can improve their integration and language skills in the long-term, international schools in the Netherlands can put less strain on children who will only stay for a few years or are handling senior topics. With a multicultural population, the Netherlands’ international schools offer a wide range of curriculums, including British, American, French, Japanese, German and Indonesian.

The Dutch government provides equality in education choice by allowing certain private schools or Dutch international schools (typically those following religious or pedagogic principles) to claim the same subsidies as public Dutch schools, influencing a situation where private schools more than double public schools. This also allows for some English schools in Amsterdam and around the Netherlands to charge relatively low fees. Other prestigious international schools in the Netherlands not eligible for funding charge the usual school year fees.

Under the Dutch education system, all children between the ages of five and 18 years are obliged to attend school.
