About Rijnlands Lyceum International School Oegstgeest

ISRLO offers international education in a Dutch setting, aiming to develop inspiring and thoughtful global citizens. The school is set in Oegstgeest, which is very close to the university city of Leiden. Our school is part of the Foundation “Stichting Het Rijnlands Lyceum”. The foundation manages six separate schools. Our schools are independent and non-denominational, which means that we are governed by a private board, and that we respect all beliefs. Het Rijnlands Lyceum Oegstgeest also offers Dutch and bilingual programmes – havo, vwo, gymnasium, tto – in the same school building. The building houses some 1,500 students and staff.

ISRLO is fully accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education. In the late 1980s our school was one of the five pilot schools to develop an international middle school programme. Hence, we were among the first schools worldwide to offer an international programme for 11-18 year olds. ISRLO is authorized by the International Baccalaureate to offer the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. We are a member of ECIS, the European Council of International Schools and DISS, the Dutch International Secondary Schools. We foster the individual and social development of students. We offer a safe learning environment en encourage students to take responsibility for themselves as well as for the community they are part of.
