International School Eindhoven


The International School Eindhoven serves the expatriate community and Dutch and non- Dutch families arriving or moving overseas. We are a centre for the expatriate and Dutch community and provide support for families and education for children. The ISE Campus is an establishment that welcomes and invites the local community to share the international experience. The ISE mission is to educate resilient, confident, self-motivated and creative students, who are internationally minded and accepting of individual differences, and who will be inspired to develop their learning and achieve their potential. The school vision is of a purposeful and focused learning community based on respect where all are engaged in a co-operative, challenging and enjoyable learning experience. We aim to provide a caring, supportive and positive environment where students, staff and parents feel valued, and safe. We challenge and support students from a wide range of national, cultural, linguistic and educational backgrounds to achieve personal excellence whilst developing as independent learners. We want to become an exceptional educational provision for international education, in all aspects of its functioning and including technological, sporting and cultural activities, recognized as such locally, within Europe and worldwide. It's our aim to meet the accreditation requirements of national and international accrediting bodies.
