||DENISE tends to stand for high quality international education, as well as an anchor for life in the Netherlands. It does so by offering an English-Dutch Dual Language program based on the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for Primary education and on the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) for Middle Years education. Through the IPC students learn to engage with the material in meaningful and exciting ways, such as inquiry-based learning and learning through discovery. Thanks to the flexible structure of the IPC, every child can develop according to their own pace and learning style. Besides the academic learning goals, the IPC also puts great emphasis on the students’ personal development. Qualities such as thoughtfulness, resilience and adaptability are fostered in a systematic way.
The aim of this school is to ensure that students receive high quality Dual Language education from the first year on. The Dual Language Program helps develop the students’ speaking, reading and writing skills building on their existing (first) language skills. With the help of an English class teacher on three days and a Dutch class teacher on two days, students are enabled to explore and learn in both languages.
