Primary Curriculum

We are committed to educating children to become proactive, compassionate global citizens who will make their individual marks on the world. 

Our whole philosophy focuses on helping students reach their full potential as individuals, developing their intellectual, social, emotional and physical potential.

At ISH we also recognise that all students have the ability to learn, that they learn at different rates, different interests and are inspired by different learning styles. We encourage children to learn through inquiry and reflection and by engaging with different perspectives on the path to lifelong learning.

 The International School of the Hague provides children with an holistic education that evokes wonder and excitement about learning. It enables students to gain age-appropriate knowledge, skills and conceptual understanding about our world.

Through the process of inquiry, children build concepts and understandings and apply their learning to a range of authentic tasks. 

Close and supportive relationships enable teachers to tailor the learning journey to individual needs. 

Our learning programmes support students to understand themselves, each other and the communities they belong to.
