Information about our school

Het Rijnlands Lyceum Oegstgeest is a bilingual school that offers Dutch and International programmes, both fully accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education.

The International School offers the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme for ages 11 to 16 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for ages 16 to 18. We have offered international education since 1983 with the introduction of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and we have run this programme with good results ever since. In the late 1980s, International School Het Rijnlands Lyceum was one of the five pilot schools developing an international middle school programme as preparation for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This has now become the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Consequently, Rijnlands Lyceum Oegstgeest was among the first schools worldwide to offer an international programme, fully independent of any national curriculum.

At Het Rijnlands Lyceum Oegstgeest, we feel connected to the tradition that justified the existence of the Foundation: offering quality education for parents that want the best for their children. Our Mission Statement tries to convey that feeling.

In a very real sense the school is both innovative and traditional. Within the Dutch legal framework and the quality standards maintained by the International Baccalaureate Organization we seek to hold our own steady course towards continuous improvement.

For our students the school is much more than just an educational institute. It is an important part of their lives. Recent surveys show that the school's atmosphere is rated very highly among the members of our school community.
