Welcome to Amity International School Amsterdam, a young and vibrant school based in Amstelveen. The school opened in February 2018 and is continuing to grow and flourish. In September 2019, we opened our doors to our new senior school catering for children aged 11-14 years old. The school will continue to grow until we offer a fully comprehensive education for children aged 3 – 18 years old.
We are a fully international school with students and staff from 39 different countries located in Amstelveen. The school is fortuitously based in an awe-inspiring monumental building surrounded by lush historical parklands, only 15 minutes away from the city centre of Amsterdam and Schiphol.
As a the school we believe that students are academically more successful when close relationships and support systems have been built between home and school. With this in mind, we want all families to feel welcome in the school. At Amity International School Amsterdam we place students at the centre of learning. Our programmes are designed to equip our students with the skills necessary to tackle not only the problems of today, but also those of the future.
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) PYP and MYP Candidate School* we offer a globally recognised curriculum that challenges students to take responsibility for their own learning and encourages them to become active world citizens.
We believe children are skilful communicators and creative problem solvers by nature. We foster curiosity and encourage questions, placing an emphasis on nurturing creativity, innovation and collaboration. Children today need resilience and exceptional critical thinking skills, as well as the confidence to question and reflect. We strive to develop these qualities by creating authentic learning environments and experiences that are both relevant and engaging.
We embrace our own cultures and celebrate the cultural diversity that exists both in our local community and in the world. We learn together and from each other, to develop into open-minded, global citizens that make a positive difference. Our school is an international family where people from all corners of the world come together to support and care for one another. It is our ambition for Amity International School Amsterdam to become the hub of the local community and we look forward to welcoming you and your family.
Community is an integral part of Amity International School Amsterdam. This is why Friends of Amity (FOA) has been set up as a group of volunteer parents whose aim is to develop a connection between parents and school and to support the challenges of living as an expat. As a new school within the Amsterdam region, we are proud of our welcoming community and we support the developments as the school continues to grow.
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. At Amity Amsterdam, we want to support you in this process by listening to what matters to you.
We’d love parents to visit our school before applying. Our Admissions Team would be very happy to answer any questions you might have to get a good understanding of the school's curriculum and philosophy. Please visit Amity Amsterdam’s website for more information.
