Amity International School Amsterdam opened its doors in September as a primary school and has space for 100 students and plans to expand to about 500 students by the start of the 2021, with grades all the way up through high school.
The school is part of the not for profit Amity Education Group, which operates schools and universities in several countries, including London, Singapore, New York, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Housed in a wonderful building and surrounded by parks, the school has state of the art facilities and large interactive areas to allow students to work outside of their classroom.
Amity has applied for PYP candidacy status with the International Baccalaureate Organisation and will also apply to become a Middle Years Programme school in the near future.
The school’s curriculum is focused on creative problem-solving. “Concepts will always remain,” says the founding principal, Darryll Lottering, “but knowledge will change, so we focus on how to acquire information, and how to apply it in different contexts rather than the recollection of knowledge. Students should see the connection between what they learning and the real world around them.
Darryll and his team look forward to talking to you.
