Bilingual education on a Dutch primary school!

This is the Visserschool's website. A school children enjoy going to, to work and learn together and to get the best out of themselves. A unique school: we are the first Dutch primary school in Amsterdam to offer a bilingual education program.

Please note that we are not an international school: we are a Dutch primary school and follow the Dutch curriculum. Our subjects are being taught in Dutch for min. 50% and max. 70% and in English for min. 30% and  max. 50% of the time.

We have a very international population: our teachers, students and/or their parents are coming from various countries. Through our lessons in global awareness we learn about their languages, cultures and countries. This way we prepare our students for a succesful future in and outside of Amsterdam. Get to know our school and education system on this website!
