Following the announcement that the International School Wassenaar – Rijnlands Lyceum will start in September 2019 with the Middle Years Programme 1 – Year 7 (for students born between 1 October 2007 and 30 September 2008) we have made the decision to also introduce the Middle Years Programme 2 – Year 8 (for students born between 1 October 2006 and 30 September 2007). 

This decision was made to help meet the needs of the local internationally mobile community after having received many requests for an additional year group. 

The International School Wassenaar is part of Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar. As a result it is 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 easily. 

The International School Wassenaar will deliver the IB-Middle Years Programme (MYP) which is an international curriculum for students between 11-16 years of age. After studying the MYP programme, students progress onto the full International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. This 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 MYP and IB programme, whereas the European School The Hague, which is also part of the Rijnlands Lyceum group, offers the European Baccalaureate programme.  

Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar is a Dutch secondary school which delivers high quality education to approximately 800 students. The school is beautifully situated in the heart of Wassenaar and has excellent facilities. International education comes naturally to Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar: the school has for many years provided bilingual education and offers near-native language programmes for English (IB), French and German. Recently, the school has introduced Chinese Language and Culture as an exam subject. Students are active members of the Model United Nations, Model European Parliament, Public Speaking and exchange programmes. 

Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar is superbly qualified to offer international education. The school has been awarded the highest possible accreditation by the Dutch education inspectorate of the Ministry of Education. In addition, Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar is listed as one of the ‘Excellent Schools’ in the Netherlands.
