ASH (est.1953) is one of the most established international schools in the Netherlands. ASH families hail from 74 countries on 6 continents, mirroring the diversity of cultures that make The Hague, known as the City of Peace and Justice, such a rich environment.

We are a private, not-for-profit institution that, at every level of organization, focuses on enhancing the student learning experience. It shows in the purpose-built ASH facilities, like our Early Childhood Center, a vibrant and joyous learning environment designed to harness inquiry and play.

From Pre-Kindergarten through High School graduation, we encourage ASH students to take control of their own learning. We know that our students will be working in jobs that may not even exist yet, so we aim to nurture confidence and agility in any stage of the learning journey here at ASH.

ASH is the only school in the Netherlands offering both AP and IB, creating a pathway to graduation based on their individual passions and talents. Our students consistently outperform global averages, and supported by our dedicated College Counseling Office, they find their ways into esteemed institutions of higher education across the globe. Our graduated Class of 2022 received offers from top colleges around the world.

Only at ASH, you will find a full-inclusion program of learning support, supporting every student with great intentionality to meet their emotional, social, physical, and academic needs.

American School of The Hague is accredited by the rigorous and independent New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

What ASH students and faculty say:

Vaibhav, student: "I chose to take the IB curriculum because it offers me many opportunities, which is important to me. I know that I want to pursue a career in Technology, but if I change my mind, I believe the curriculum will help me recognize my talents."

Christine, high school science teacher: "The students are enjoying our approach to science learning. It is not just about learning the facts and giving students the formulas. It is about learning what scientists do, and learning to think the way scientists think."

David, high school principal: "Our student results were excellent considering students endured many obstacles over the past 3 years. We are seeing more and more students take advantage of the AP course offerings at ASH as they continue to give students access to highly competitive Dutch and European university options. This is the true richness of the ASH course offerings that lead to doors opening to the future."
