What we stand for



The International Waldorf School of The Hague is a non-profit international primary school with a distinct educational vision. Engagement with societal developments in sustainability, peace, justice, and wellbeing plays a key role in shaping our educational programme.

A Balanced Foundation

At the International Waldorf School, head, heart and hands are addressed in a healthy balance. Wonderment lays at the basis of our education; within our lessons we make optimal use of the natural curiosity inherent in children. At our school, we consider proficiency in mathematics and literacy to be of equal importance to physical education, handicrafts, art and respect for the natural world around us. The International Waldorf School distinguishes itself through the integration of cognitive and artistic education.


The International Waldorf School educates children to become positive, active and engaged global citizens. We do that by aiding each student in his or her development as an independent, freethinking individual ready to become an active member of society. In addition, we also offer parents solid pedagogic support. Growing up in a strange, transient and changeable environment is therefore a key topic.

Social network

The International Waldorf School is affiliated with the Vrije School in The Hague, a collaboration that renders many advantages. Not only are we able to enjoy the wealth of 95 years experience and expertise but that history enables us to offer our families an extensive social network in the Netherlands.
In addition, due in part to the Liberal Arts approach and the international curriculum, children can easily cross over to education programs provided by international schools in other parts of the world.
