Values and vision
International School Eerde welcomes pupils from around the world and wants to offer a culturally diverse and enriching learning environment where all nationalities are celebrated. The all-through school promotes life-long learning and educates students to become global citizens. Children are nurtured by dedicated teaching staff and encouraged to push themselves to reach their full potential across the curriculum, while at the same time discovering and developing their individual talents and skills. The school wants students to be prepared for their future and to have a focus and ambition and offers them the chance to meet with a careers counsellor so they can determine what they will do after completing their education. Pupils are encouraged to get involved in extra-curricular activities outside the classroom to enhance their learning experience while learning new skills and meeting new friends. These include music lessons, drama class and sports clubs.
