What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
The primary is fantastic, you're lucky if your child gets in (huge waiting list)
The secondary is a big international school (70 nationalities, with mainly European, only a few Dutch, teachers) which suffered from the transition of IGCSE's to MYP, but has improved over the last year.
There is a rich atmosphere & a lot of dedicated teachers. The communication between the staff & parents could still be improved though, as now you need to be on top of things yourself. This also has to do with the MYP-system which is kind of difficult to get the hang of, but is taught all over the world.
IB results have been above average for years.
