Our imagination is where we go when our reality just simply won't do. Imagination is where vision is born, every birth of a new idea forms our new reality. What are you imagining?

The school philosophy is founded on a deep understanding of compassion for one another, community-based learning, relationship building, valuing our unique identity whilst learning the importance of celebrating diversity.  

Our school aims to further develop internationally minded, curious and empathic young people who are intrinsically motivated to positively impact their local and global community, creating sustainable change.  

Our website will take you on a journey of what it means to be part of the AIS learning community and how our educational approach is structured. This school year we will further professionalise our organisation, with a focus on improving education, organisation and communication.    

AIS is steadily growing to meet the demand for international education within Amstelveen & Ouderkerk. In order to maintain a balance between growth, stability, innovation, inclusion and educational quality, our team has developed a strategic plan which will be closely monitored by our quality care committee (QCC) throughout the school year. We are excited to be exploring the options of a new purpose build building right here in Amstelveen. For the coming two years AIS will be suited in a temporary building in Westwijk.

In line with Onderwijsgroep Amstelland’s school group educational strategic plan, AIS aims to continue developing a deeper understanding of what it means to be internationally minded, identity, connected with one another and maintain trusting relationships with all twelve Dutch schools in our dynamic organisation. Our parent community plays a fundamental role in developing and maintaining these important relationships.   

While fostering our global citizenship values at AIS, we embrace the local Dutch community and seek out invitations to participate and experience the Dutch culture celebrating the values of our host country.  

Our team looks forward to welcoming you at the AIS famliy! 


Our school development plan 2021-2022 embraces the need for creativity, social and emotional safety, re-connecting after COVID & preparing our school for the International School Recognition & the Dutch Primary  School Inspection.

Wouldn’t life be boring if we all learned in the same way?
