Over 70 years ago professors from Leiden University who were dissatisfied with the quality of the education in the area offered strong support to establish a modern school on a general basis in 1936. The initiative was successful; ‘Het Rijnlands Lyceum’ continued to grow into a foundation of six schools in The Netherlands and is affiliated with five schools abroad. ‘Rijnlands Lyceum’ has become a brand name and together the schools offer Dutch, bilingual (Dutch/English) and international education to approximately 7000 students.

The Rijnlands Schools feel a bond with the traditions from which they originated, but they have all developed their own distinguished profiles. The common focus however is on the quality of education: the schools have the ambition to offer high quality education and to stimulate students to develop to their full potential.
