Welcome from the Leadership

We welcome you to the International School Delft website.

International School Delft was launched in 2014 as a small international primary school with fewer than 10 children. In 2020/2021 ISD Primary teaches around 200 students from a diverse background. ISD Primary is governed by the Board of the Laurentius Stichting.

In September 2019, ISD expanded the international education on offer with the launch of a secondary school. ISD Secondary  is governed by the Board of the Stichting Lucas Onderwijs. After a successful first year, ISD Secondary is now ready to receive students in 5 classes divided over MYP 1, 2 and 3.

The two school Boards work closely together to present a vertically-aligned International Baccalaureate (IB) school for Primary and Secondary Education, with a focus on inquiry-based learning. The curricula aim to prepare our students by providing them with the skills necessary for global citizenship.

The International School Delft, uniquely located in the historic town of Delft and with a close connection to the Technical University, offers a continuous and inspiring future-oriented learning environment that fosters innovation, design and technology.

As a smaller international school, we offer a tight-knit and friendly community of students, staff and parents from a culturally diverse background. We are proud of the ISD community spirit that makes the school such a special place for students to learn and develop. ISD aims 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 region.

We hope you enjoy this virtual visit to our school buildings and feel welcome to contact us for more information, or to arrange a visit.
