Hi,
I don't have children in school here but I have friends who do. From what I have heard from them, IF you are planning to be here for any length of time, it seems the preference is to put them in a school where Dutch is the language. For children, they find they pick it up very easily within a few months. If you are only here on a temporary work contract, then they usually suggest going with the INternational School.

In comparing the differences, I know there are a lot of differences but since I don't have personal knowledge, hopefully someone else will answer your questions more specifically. The yearly school schedule is somewhat different as is the daily schedule.
