School Summary
:
International, IB, US curricula.
184 students, 11-19 yrs.

The International School Maastricht was established in 1984 as a department of an already existing Dutch state school - the Jeanne d'Arc College. With modern facilities and catering to the international community in the Euro-region Maastricht, ISM is subsidized by the Dutch Government and the Foundation for International Education in the Euro-region Maastricht.

International School Maastricht offers an international English-language academic curriculum leading to IGCSE and IB. All staff are qualified teachers, most with international experience. Many are native speakers of English. Dutch studies and Dutch language courses promote integration into the local community. The school has a School Counsellor, Learning Support Teacher and runs the LAP programme for those students who require support. Extra English language support is available in Years 1-3 for those students who arrive with little or no English through the Foundation Course. The Foundation Course students follow an adapted timetable, integrating into the normal timetable when appropriate.

The 190 students represent 38 nationalities. On leaving, most go on to further education, either at home or in the Netherlands. The IB allows students to apply for university admission worldwide. The school has two careers counsellors

Excursions are made to cultural events at national and international locations. Some cultural and sporting activities are integrated with the Dutch school.

The International School Maastricht believes that extra-curricular activities are an essential part of the learning process. Some of the activities in which pupils can participate are: drama, music, public speaking and writing competitions, Model United Nations, language exchanges and mountain camp in the Alps.

The International School Maastricht is situated in a new building, which it shares with a Dutch secondary school. The facilities available to students include: science labs, fully equipped music and art rooms, a computer lab, an IT equipped study centre, two gyms, one with a climbing wall, and a canteen.

Children are accepted provided they are internationally mobile and are able to follow the curriculum. Placement tests form part of the admissions procedure.
