The International School of The Hague

Learning is the Heart of The International School of The Hague 

The International School of The Hague (ISH) is located in the southern area of The Hague, the city of Peace & Justice. The School is for students from 4 - 18 years of age and is truly international with 90 nationalities amongst the student body. The Primary School follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the Secondary School the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programme (MYP & DP). 

ISH takes great pride in its academic success. We were the first school to become "Mastering" through the IPC accreditation. The Secondary School is an IB World School accredited by the CIS. Our MYP and DP results are consistently above the world average. Our philosophy is to provide as many opportunities to our students both in and out of the classroom with a rich extra-curricular programme that runs in synergy with our academic programmes. 

As the school has grown close to 1800 students, we have been very conscious not to forget our vision of "Learning is the Heart of the International School of The Hague".
