Start of School Essentials


We would like to extend a very warm welcome to The International School of The Hague (ISH). We are pleased you have chosen our school and feel confident we can offer your child an exciting and rewarding learning experience. 

ISH is a truly international school representing over 100 nationalities. Our strength is our diversity and we inspire our students to develop personal excellence and to become compassionate and proactive global citizens.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family into our school community. Until then, we wanted to make sure that you have the information you need to make the move to The Netherlands as smooth as possible.  

Click on the buttons below for some of the information which we think will help with your move, and settle into the school community.

We will be adding to this information up until the first days of school. There may also need to be changes to information already there, due to continual updates in measures put in place by the Dutch government for schools in The Netherlands. 

If you would like to receive an e-mail when information is updated. You can subscribe to alerts for a variety of types of information by clicking on the bell icon next to the information on the relevant page, as you can see in the image below. 

If you have any questions about how to navigate these pages, or if you find you are missing information, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We look forward to welcoming you and your children.
