The International School Wassenaar is a warm, inclusive, supportive community where cultures are embraced and unique talents are celebrated. Our size and approach allows us to get to know each student’s unique background and personality as well as their individual goals. We foster a strong work ethic and enjoyment of learning so that students genuinely enjoy coming to school every day. ISW is a Dutch government-subsidized school offering high-quality international education. Hosting a large number of nationalities, cultures and languages it forms a dynamic international community. As part of the Rijnlands Lyceum Foundation, it is a centre of expertise and innovation. Besides offering a modern education, ISW is also very much a home away from home for the students and families. As a small school, ISW can know each student and provide each individual with the care they need. By being part of a larger Dutch school, ISW is not a bubble school, but very much a part of the local community in which the students live and learn together on a daily basis.
