Our school aims to teach children that every member of every society should be treated with the above-mentioned personal values. We move, exist and learn in a small school
with a large diversity. Hosting over thirty different cultural backgrounds, catering to special educational needs where possible and combining two different curricula,
we are gaining a real taste of today's world; a truly international one. We accept each other’s differences, listen to each other’s views and yet feel able to enquire
and ask questions. Our school aims to make a significant contribution to the acceptance of other cultures besides the Dutch culture, yet we insist on a ‘touch of Dutch’
at all times. We are firm believers of self-identity and knowing one's roots. Many of our students come from mixed race families learning to accept differences and
diversity within their homes not only at school.
At NISL we believe the world comes together to learn from each other; something a textbook cannot teach.
