The European School The Hague (ESH) is an officially accredited European School providing multilingual and multicultural education, offering complete Early Years, Primary and Secondary education leading to the European Baccalaureate.  The ESH is part of the European Schools Network, a group of international schools spread out across a number of European countries. The ESH was founded with the main intention of providing an education to the children of employees of the EU Government and its subsidiaries. Partially financed by the Dutch Government, most years of the school are taught with multiple language options.
The basis for our Primary school curriculum is the established curriculum of the European Schools. The curriculum encompasses the ESH mission and vision and seeks to develop pupils’ key competences and core values. Learning programmes are planned in a cross-curriculum manner, linking concepts and skills across subject areas. All pupils in the English, French, German and Spanish language sections also receive lessons in Dutch as an Additional Language. Al curriculum documents can be found on the official website of the European Schools (Early Years cycle and Primary cycle). Within the European Schools system there is no official curriculum for Dutch as an additional language, however, we have developed a curriculum which is available on our website
In the Secondary school we prepare our students for the European Baccalaureate. Secondary education in the European Schools lasts for a total of seven years divided into three cycles. A key element of the curriculum across all the cycles is the multilingual teaching and learning that provides students with the opportunity to become fluent in at least three languages. The syllabi in all the language sections of the European Schools, including those at the ESH, are – with the exception of mother tongue tuition – standardised. All programmes of study in the different sections lead to the same examination: the European Baccalaureate. Syllabi can be downloaded from the European Schools website under European Schools/ Studies and certificates.
Currently we provide education to more than 1250 pupils from the Early Years to the Secondary school. It is an education that can take them further to higher education anywhere in Europe or beyond.
ESH Primary is conveniently situated in between the city centre and the beach of Scheveningen. ESH Secondary is located 4,5 km from ESH Primary and 10 minutes by bike from Central Station.
