International Schools in Amsterdam

Expats will have access to a good selection of international schools in Amsterdam. These schools offer the curriculum of a particular country or organisation, either in English or in the language of the school's country of origin. International schools give expat children the possibility of continuing with a familiar curriculum taught in their home language. This can go a long way to smoothing the adjustment period after moving to the Netherlands. Studying at an international school can also ease future transfers to other schools with the same curriculum, should the child return home or move to another country.

See below for some of Amsterdam's most reputable international schools.
