INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS IN THE NETHERLANDS

Are you looking for an international school for your children in the Netherlands?

Below you can find a list of all international schools in the country – sorted in alphabetical order by city.

Uniquely, the Dutch government subsidizes a couple of international schools to support the expat community. The fees of these schools are usually around 4,500 to 5,500 euros per year, per child. In the list below, these schools are marked with an *.

Then there are also some international schools which are subsidized by the government of the country they are related to, for example the French and Japanese schools.

For the private international schools, the parents need to pay all school fees, usually starting at around 15,000 euros per year.

All of the below international schools teach in English, unless indicated otherwise.

Most of these schools have a waiting list, so, if possible, you should inquire about availability before you move to the Netherlands.

 

Check the schools’ individual websites for the latest info.

 

Are you hesitating between Dutch and international school? In this Doodly video I explain the differences. 

Could you use some independent and personal advice to decide which school would suit your family best? Book a video call through our website.
