Arnhem International School

The Primary Department for children age 4 to 12 years, is located in the Dr. Aletta Jacobs School, a Dutch state primary school, comprising a Dutch Department and the International Department.

The Primary Department welcomes children of all nationalities into its safe and friendly environment. As part of a Dutch school community the children have direct contact with Dutch culture and customs, while still being educated in English.

Close cooperation with parents and teachers results in individually adapted programmes to foster the best educational development of each child. The International Department has nine groups with an average class size of approximately 18 children following the English National Curriculum. This Curriculum is a proven well established and bench marked curriculum. We also provide an excellent education at Dutch language and culture.

The partnership between home and school plays a vital role in the learning process and we actively encourage parents and carers to visit the school regularly to facilitate this relationship.
If you are interested in finding out more about our school please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
