INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL WASSENAAR – Rijnlands Lyceum
In September 2019, the Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar will be opening its doors to international students. The new school will be called the ‘International School Wassenaar – Rijnlands Lyceum’
The International School Wassenaar will be part of Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar. As a result it will be possible for expat students to have the benefits of an international curriculum within the context of a regular Dutch secondary school, allowing expat students to integrate into Dutch society more.
The International School Wassenaar will deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) which is an international educational programme for students aged between 11-16 years of age. After studying the MYP programme, students progress onto the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme (IB DP), which is a two-year programme qualifying for university entrance worldwide.
The Rijnlands Lyceum group of schools is the biggest provider of international education in the Netherlands. Rijnlands Lyceum Oestgeest and the International School of The Hague both offer the International Baccalaureate MYP and DP programmes, whereas the European School The Hague which is also part of the Rijnlands Lyceum group, offers the European Baccalaureate programme.
