**International School Haarlem, along with other schools in The Netherlands, will be closed until 27th April as part of the measures put in place by the Dutch government to combat the spread of coronavirus. If you need to contact us during the closure please refer to the contact page.**
The International School Haarlem opened its doors in September 2017 with a primary department and started in 2018 with a secondary department.
The school offers an international curriculum to specific groups of students. We are proud of our school with its open and engaged culture, with our students at the heart of it.
At this moment the school is located on two sites:
- Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 are based at our location Schreveliusstraat 27, 2014 XP in Haarlem
- Groups 5, 6 and 7 are taught with MYP 1, 2, 3 and 4 at our second site on the Oorkondelaan 65, 2033MN in Haarlem East.
The distance between school sites is approximately 3 km.
In academic year 2020-2021, we will add MYP5 to our Secondary Department.
In academic year 2021-2022, we will start our Diploma Programme with DP1.
Please go to 'Organisation' to find information about our two locations.
