International School Twente is the only international school in the Twente region. We offer international education for children aged 4-12. We are fully recognized by the Dutch Ministry of Education and accountable for the quality of our education to the Dutch Inspectorate.
Thanks to funding from the Dutch government, we are able to provide high quality international education without extremely high school fees.
The International Primary Curriculum offered by the IST promotes the integration of essential skills, values and attitudes across all program areas. Our curriculum also builds a solid foundation in English literacy and numeracy. Furthermore, all subjects are enhanced by the use of innovative technology.
IST is a caring community in which each child feels valued.
We believe it is essential to create an environment in which individual self-esteem flourishes.
We want to meet the concerns of international children.
Close cooperation with the Dutch Prinseschool helps children integrate more easily. We promote intercultural understanding, tolerance and respect. We understand that the IST is also a meeting place for parents from the international mobile community, and therefore we support and facilitate initiatives for parent’s clubs like our coffee club and the parent’s committee.
