International community schools
International community schools provide a learning environment for students who want to learn about a specific culture or country. Others, however, place a lot of emphasis on connecting with Dutch society. This includes a curriculum consisting of Dutch language lessons and activities to promote integration.
All schools listed below are happy to explain their education options in person, by phone or online – they recommend visiting where possible so that you can get a complete sense of their facilities and offerings.
This non-profit organisation provides an inspiring learning environment for students in the local community to learn the Chinese language (and about Chinese culture). It caters for the needs of native Chinese-speaking students who temporarily live in the Netherlands, ensuring the continuity of their Chinese education. Non-Chinese students can also attend their Chinese language courses.
