Finding your child's personal excellence

When your child joins The International School of The Hague (ISH), regardless of where they are in their educational journey, our teachers spend time understanding their individual needs and how they best learn.  

We know that every student is different and has the potential to achieve their own personal excellence when they feel supported, safe and secure at school. That’s why we have created an environment which celebrates difference, supports wellbeing and offers a broad choice within the curriculum so that every student can find their own path. 

Experience tells us that when your child's natural curiosity to learn is inspired, and they are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning, that’s when high quality learning happens. Our student-led academic approach centres around guiding students of all ages to make connections between their own experiences and what they learn in the classroom, then providing opportunities for them to apply these lessons to the real world around them. 

We believe passionately that experiential learning is essential to supporting these connections and therefore all students at ISH are given a range of ways, both curricular and co-curricular, to enrich their academic education and their lives.

So what does this look like in practice?

In Primary, as part of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), 6 and 7 year-olds learning about different foods find out how they grow, where they grow, which food group they belong to and their nutritional benefit. They also get to prepare food in the kitchen, serve it to their classmates and create a food chart, learning how to write the verbs they would need for cooking in their home languages.
