Welcome from the Secondary Principal

A very warm welcome to our website. The Secondary School of the International School of The Hague (ISH) is a busy and vibrant community that focuses on academic progress and success through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). In addition, the heartbeat of a school is the amalgamation of academic rigour, coupled with a rich, varied and successful extra-curricular programme. As a secondary student at ISH, you will have a plethora of opportunities to participate in sports at the International Schools Sports Tournament (ISST), our own Model United Nations (MUNISH) or Greening the ISH for which we have achieved the prestigious Green Flag Status. Our 350 seat auditorium houses plays and concerts throughout the year. The Hague is the International City of Peace and Justice and we utilize our location well to incorporate the many opportunities that are present in the city to supplement our curricula.

The staff, students and management of ISH take great pride in the implementation of the MYP curriculum and we are currently piloting three IB MYP initiatives in Technology, Maths and Arts. Our Diploma Programme results are consistently above the world average and students often go on to good universities in the Netherlands, UK and USA.

With over 80 nationalities studying here at the school, our cultural diversity gives us a special and warm atmosphere that is essential for 21st Century education.

Welcome to our school. I hope you enjoy the website.
