Mission and Vision
Inspiring learning for a sustainable future
Our mission is driven by the IB learner profile and inspired by Delft.
International School Delft is committed to developing young people who demonstrate integrity, responsibility and optimism in their daily lives. We support them in their journey to become ethical youngsters who learn how to seek solutions, be innovative and to make a difference. Our school community aspires to create bright futures through discoveries in learning both locally and globally. Teachers, students and parents strive to share the common goals of mutual understanding, a celebration of difference and similarity and a lifelong love for learning.
History and Ambitions for Development
International School Delft was launched in 2014 as a small international school with less than 10 Students, serving the primary school age range. The primary school celebrated its 5th year in the spring of 2019 with over 170 students.
Earlier in the same year, the Ministry of Education granted approval to expand the international education offer into the secondary school years. In doing so, it creates a vertically aligned International Baccalaureate (IB) school for Primary and Secondary Education.
The primary school is governed by the Laurentius Stichting, as an affiliate of the Gabriëlschool.
The secondary school is governed by the Stichting Lucas Onderwijs, as an affiliate of Stanislascollege Westplantsoen.
The Boards share their ambition for ISD to become a distinctive international school, providing for and giving to, the community of Delft. An additional partner in this tripartite cooperation is the childcare provider, True Colors, which has been working with ISD primary since its beginning. It is fully integrated into the primary school facilities and is committed to using the IB Primary Years Programme for our youngest learners..
This dynamic partnership provides high quality, continuous education with onsite pre-school care, primary education and a secondary school where students graduate at 18, ready and fully prepared for the next steps in education or the world of work.
