Parent's Review of American International School of Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Netherlands

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

American International School of Rotterdam

In what town or city is this school located?

Rotterdam

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International, American

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Preschool through Grade 12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Bus, walk, bike

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Sub-par education (especially the secondary school) is WAY over priced. Small, and lots of one-on-one attention for the primary/elementary school, which is a plus, but severely lacking in activities (and students, for that matter) in the secondary school. Tuition is very expensive, far more expensive than other superior options, not sure where the money is going, as foreign language programs have been cut, as well as many other advanced courses needed for high school that are just not even offered. Seasonal after school sports are an additional charge, and are very limited (volleyball, basketball, soccer, swimming, softball - that is it for the year). Highly disappointing, especially considering their own website lists MANY other things available.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Nothing to help. Small intimate school should have been able to provide some kind of assistance, but there was nothing.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Non-existent. There is a PTSA, not well managed, they tend to spend money on things that only benefit the children in the primary school.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Please, please look elsewhere. This school was such a disappointment. Unfortunately, there are a few talented educators there (primary school). I hope those teachers move on soon because I cannot see this school standing much longer under the current dictator of a director. He has squandered money, destroyed morale, and has made AISR a most unfortunate place to be.

Expat moms share their experiences having a baby in The Netherlands - from wonderful prenatal care to the home birth option for uncomplicated pregnancies and everything in between. While many new moms have very short hospital stays, they receive at home care from a beloved Kraamzorg (home nurse) as part of their maternity care, which expats resoundingly say makes all the difference.
