We moved to the Netherlands over 2 years ago with our three children, and are so grateful for finding this school. The teachers are fabulous, and from many places across the world - truly understanding international children. Their curriculum is also great, lots of creativity and thematic learning. The kids really love it. They also offer a lot of additional activities such as music classes, sport, self defence, lego. It really is a great community. Even though we live in Haarlem the school is easily accessible.

This school is amazing! My child loves going there. The teachers are always so nice and definitely have high academic knowledge. One thing that i think is so unique to this school is all the creativity and freedom that they give to the kids while still keeping them focused on their work. When it comes to the building, its always clean and the playground is wide and has plenty of fun stuff to play with! including all the equipment and toys that the school supplies the kids with.

The team is very personally involved and committed to the children, providing each child with the attention and care needed. The school has a lot of attention for activities, and includes them in the learning process as part of the IPC curriculum. We're very happy with this school!

Optimist international school has a very good curriculum from the group1. Teachers are very friendly and encourage the kids in all activities they perform. We are very happy as my kid loves to go to school. Transportation facilities are also good towards the school.

Optimist International School is a great place for kids. The educational methods used here are engaging for kids. Kids love to go to school day after day with more enthusiasm. It's well connected to public transport, All the teaching staff are friendly and helpful to answer any of the parent's questions. They provide apt feedback in parent-teacher meetings. The school itself is growing but school is improving with Scale. Kids also are friendly and enjoy their times together. Kids skills are improving. Kids come from various countries across the world providing a different perspective to the same topics. They are a new school but provide a lot of after school activities directly supported by the school. Which we appreciate a Lot. Some of the examples are: 1. Swimming classes 2. Guitar Classes 3. Scratch Programming 4. Art lessons 5. Dutch classes for kids any many more.. just get in touch you will be surprised... We thank Optimist management, teaching staff, and support staff for the efforts they are putting in and making this a possibility. We Highly Recommend OIS for a school in and around Hoofddorp.

Almost 2 years ago we moved from Spain to the Netherlands. Before we arrived I was worried how my children will adapt to a new school. Will they find new friends? Will they be happy? Will they get the best possible education while enjoying learning and coming to school? YES

Optimist International school is a truly International in nature by having kids belongs to different culture speaks different language and came from different continental i.e. from Asia, Europe, USA etc. but all are studying , playing and having fun together like pearls in a beautiful necklace of Optimist International School. I like enthusiasm and positive attitudes of teachers and other staff of this school. They are eager to give their best to kids. Teachers are very professional to identify strength and area of improvements of a kid and they put their hard efforts to motivate and encourage kids for their continuous improvement in a very interesting and easy way. I have experience of sending my kid in other International schools as well e.g. British school of Amsterdam, AICS School Amsterdam but I can say that this school is the best. I am glad that I got "Optimist International School" for my son. Thanks to the management for arranging such a amazing learning , sportive environment and teachers for our kids. Management team always well communicate and actively engage parents to discuss about growth of kids , school's new initiatives etc. Complement to all school staffs for the effort they are putting for the complete development of our kids.
