HSV International School (Haagsche Schoolvereeniging)

Since 1986, the HSV International Primary School has provided primary-aged children quality and affordable English language education for expat children aged 3 to 11 years old.

The HSV provides an international education in a Dutch context for students from diverse backgrounds, cultures, traditions and religions. It offers the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) with specialist teaching in physical education, music and handicraft. The school also offers Dutch language lessons and culture lessons for all age groups, as well as English as an Additional Language for children who require extra support.

It has four locations in different areas of The Hague. Lighthouse is their school for children with special needs. It offers individualised education to children aged 3-13 who are unable to cope in international mainstream education. They specialise in complex behavioural and/or developmental problems. The Three Little Ships is their International Pre-School for children from the age of 3 and 4 years old. It is an inclusive setting, providing a stimulating play-based learning environment for children.
