Word of Welcome
Welcome to the International School Twente. Our school is a very special (happy and safe, inclusive environment) place for children of many different cultures to meet, learn and grow together in a unique Dutch context. We want our children to be excited to learn and to become confident in sharing their cultures, experiences and ideas. We strive to learn with and from each other and welcome parental involvement to broaden our cultural awareness. The IST is a close knit community supporting each other and forming life-long friendships from around the world.
We understand the uniqueness of each child and help to develop the individual child in their learning journey offering
Deep respect for the flexibility of our pupils to adapt to another country forming instant friendships that go beyond language.
International educuation offers children unique advantages. Aside from the ability to learn several new languages, children gain unique perspectives on themselves, their peers, and their place in the world, and a lifelong respect and value for the differences and similarities between each other.
We are looking forward to getting to know you, the next members of our community, and all that we have to learn from each other!
