International School Delft, uniquely situated in the picturesque historic town of Delft, between The Hague and Rotterdam, offers an inspiring future-oriented learning environment that fosters innovation, design and technology.
The ISD Primary is an IB World School, offering the Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) to students age 4-11. ISD Secondary is a candidate school* for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
ISD was launched in 2014 as a small international school with less than 10 students, offering the IB Primary Years Programme. The primary school currently teaches 200 students from a diverse cultural background.
ISD’s secondary campus was launched in 2019 to cater for the growing demand for international secondary education in the Delft/The Hague region. In the Secondary school we expand -year by year- to offer all years of the Middle Years Programme by 2022. The school will add the Diploma Programme (IB DP), thereafter.
International School Delft strives to be a hub for the international and local communities of Delft and, as such, develops links with other schools, both international and national, in the wider region. We are linked to a variety of cultural, social and physical organisations and activities in the Delft region. International School Delft fosters an inclusive and friendly environment in which students are stimulated to develop into compassionate, internationally minded individuals, who strive to make a positive and peaceful change in the world. The programme aims to stimulate and builds on the natural curiosity of the student, with inspiring future oriented, inquiry-based learning.
ISD has a close relationship with its partners, amongst others: True Colors, the City of Delft and the Technical University of Delft. The highly reputable TU Delft is a place of future innovation and real-world learning through its longstanding focus on design, engineering, IT and science. The partnership with the TU Delft motivates, inspires and raises the aspirations of our students. Examples of our partnership are reflected in a variety of joint projects, often focused on design thinking.
ISD, a member of Dutch International School, is partly state-funded and for the quality and provisions of its educational programmes accountable to the Dutch Ministry of Education.
From August 2021, we welcome students from PYP 1 to MYP 4.
