International and Bilingual Schools and Daycares in The Hague area

The Hague’s International Schools

Many international schools are partly funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, which means that they have to abide by the standards and rules of this ministry.

International education is available for children from the age of 4 and mostly prepares children for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

There are a number of international schools and third-country schools in and around The Hague:

*De Haagsche Schoolvereeniging is an international primary school with four different locations throughout The Hague.

Bilingual Education

If you just arrived to The Hague and you want your teenagers to attend a Dutch school, but are afraid that they might struggle with the language, you can enroll them at a secondary school with bilingual education. 

In these schools, children are instructed both in English and Dutch.

Subjects like math, biology, economics, or IT are taught in English all throughout the six years of VWO (pre-university) level.

Although the preparations for examinations and the exams themselves are usually taken in Dutch, these schools tend to offer an alternative to students with a lower proficiency in Dutch.

In some cases, for instance, your children will be able to take the exam for the International Baccalaureate English A2 Certificate, which qualifies them to study at English-speaking universities.

There are quite a few secondary schools in The Hague which offer bilingual education:

These schools also offer a variety of international activities and exchange programs. For more information on the schools’ bilingual program, please contact each school individually.
