Learning is the Heart of the International School of The Hague.

We offer top quality international education, fostering academic success as well as encouraging sporting and creative abilities in a community based on honesty, fairness, open-mindedness and tolerance. There are more than 90 nationalities represented at The International School of The Hague. In addition, being part of a Dutch school foundation enables us to benefit from the rich learning opportunities our host country offers and find roots here.

Our Primary School is the first in the world to have achieved accreditation at 'Mastering' Level from the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Years 7-11 offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), and Years 12-13 offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and Careers-related Programme (IBCP). In addition, Dutch is taught to all students in the MYP as part of helping them fit into the host community.

The IB MYP provides the framework for the broad range of subjects that are offered in Years 7-11. Learning across the MYP eight subject groups is integrated through Approaches to Teaching and Learning, in particular a focus on concepts and inquiry, and through the Global Contexts. All students participate in our Service as Action Programme.

The IB DP aims to continue the education of critical and empathetic global citizens in six selected subjects and the mandatory components of Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and the Extended Essay, which prepares students for writing at university level. Supporting our international community is key in all aspects of the school. The English Language Resource Centre, Mother Tongue classes and the Learning Support Centre play important roles in meeting the individual needs of our students.

The aim of the IB programmes at The International School of The Hague is to develop internationally minded people who, through recognizing their common identity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
