We have provided Dutch education in Lagos since 1967, under various forms of governance. We currently operate as a Dutch foundation. “The Netherlands School Lagos”, established on the 17th of August 1994 changed its name to “The Netherlands International School Lagos” in August 2010, to reflect the development of the English Stream to be offered alongside the Dutch program.

Our school has an important task as a center of Dutch language and culture in an international setting. Empowered by its affiliation with the Foundation for Dutch Education Abroad (Stichting NOB), NISL is able to provide a seamless transition into Dutch schools in the Netherlands or abroad by promoting emotional and cultural bond with the Netherlands in her pupils.

The Executive Board of The Netherlands International School Lagos comprises the chairman, secretary, and treasurer and is appointed by parents. A General Parent’s Assembly convenes at least once per year where this right can be exercised.
