About European School of Bergen (ESB)

For more than half a century, many European School Bergen (ESB) graduates have gone on to successful international careers. We follow the European Schools curriculum leading to the European Baccalaureate, which provides entry to universities around Europe and beyond. Our school is located in the picturesque town of Bergen, close to the beach, forest and dunes and close enough to Amsterdam and Haarlem for many of our pupils to make the journey every day. Around 20% of our pupils live in Amsterdam.

The European Schools are special in many aspects. We educate our pupils in different linguistic sections where pupils are taught in their dominant language (often their mother tongue) and the older they get the more subjects will be taught in the second language of the student. Our students are being mixed with students from all over Europe and they are studying in a truly international environment. Out of the bases of mutual respect we make our students curious about others and other cultures at the same time as they are proud of their own origin. With the European Baccalaureate our students have obtained a prestigious diploma which will open for entry into any University within the European Union.

Our location is Bergen, in the province of North-Holland. We attract students from the immediate area, including the city of Alkmaar, but we do also have as many as around 20% of our students who have found their way to us from Amsterdam and Haarlem areas.

Unreliable staff. Bring people to interview for jobs and they treat them like garbage.
