Can my child attend ISU

ISU provides continuity of education for internationally mobile students.

ISU caters for internationally mobile students from all over the world who can demonstrate a need for international education, and who will be based in the Netherlands for a temporary period. Children of Dutch nationals returning to the Netherlands are eligible to apply if they have lived and gone to school abroad for at least 2 years.

We teach the IB Programmes

At ISU we have chosen to teach the International Baccalaureate programmes, as we believe in their educational philosophy. It is a student-centred, inquiry based approach to teaching and learning which gives our students agency. This means that students are actively involved in their own education and in the school community.

Inclusion at ISU

At ISU we believe that students have a right to education that enables them to make progress, become confident individuals making a successful transition into adulthood. IB programmes are designed to ensure inclusivity and equitability allowing all IB learners to have equal opportunities.
