British School Versus Dutch education

Post Posted: Thu Aug 31, 2006 8:23 pm

Hello, I have two small children and I was wondering if any Expat’s with children currently send their children to a local Dutch school rather than the British school.

I approached the local British school in The Hague and it will cost approx. 28,000 Euro’s for the first year Sad .

Any advice on the quality of teaching within the local schools would be appreciated.

My son who is 10 years old is attending a local school in Amsterdam. It is great, the education is great and so are the teachers. I was also concerned about whether I should send him to a Dutch or International school. I am glad I saved the money. I think if you are planning to live in Holland long term and wanted your children to adjust to Dutch culture and children sending them to a local school is better. From what I heard International schools teaches mostly in English and I don't know if that is wise if you plan on living in Holland long term.
I would suggest checking out the local school, taking a tour, asking alot of questions. I was surprised to see how many international children attend my sons school. There are people from the UK, Brazil, The middle east etc...It is great and he is learning Dutch really fast.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!:)
