Mission statement

Together with our students, we aspire to live up to the vision of our mission statement. The German International School The Hague offer students, teachers and parents a home away from home where each of us can feel comfortable and be who we are. Our school promotes the joy of learning and paves the path for a successful future within a familiar atmosphere.

Our mission does not exist on its own - together we share the task of filling it with life!

the principles for our school life.

• Individual guidance and advancement together with personal responsibility for learning are

essential components of our educational concept.

• We guide our students forward to achieve  internationally recognised qualifications – Middle

School Leaving exam or a bilingual International High School Diploma.


• Transparency is created through trust and open cooperation within our school community.

• Our school provides a learning and living environment which we responsibly shape and preserve.

• Social commitment and civil courage are taken as a matter of course both within and beyond our

school community.

global network of German schools abroad.
