Principal's Welcome

Amity International School Amsterdam

Dear Families,

Amity International School Amsterdam is unique. 

Located in a historic monumental building on a beautiful campus close to the museums of Amsterdam and Schiphol airport, we pride ourselves on knowing the individual learning needs of each of our students. Our culture of care, and high standards of safety and security, ensure that our students’ well-being is our main priority. Our learners represent over 30 different nationalities, speaking more than 20 different languages, promoting a diverse and inclusive community of globally minded citizens. 

As Principal of Amity, and a member of our wider team since 2020, it is a genuine privilege to welcome you to our school. Our vision is to empower each individual to thrive and make a positive difference. In a world of uncertainty and complexity, this means enabling our learners to develop their intrapersonal awareness and interpersonal skills, and to foster a spirit of service and action for a hope-filled future. 

At Amity International School Amsterdam, we work hard to set our students up for success so they can fulfill their unique potential. Our dedicated team of educators are committed to providing a supportive and inspiring environment for growth and development -  be that in relation to sports, the Arts, or traditional academic achievement. As a relatively young school, we are proud of our school’s growth, driven as it is by all members of our community. Our goals are outlined in more detail below.

Our goals

We can't emphasize enough the importance of our home-school partnership in the learning journeys of your children. When parents are actively involved in their child's education, it creates a powerful support system. We encourage parents to stay engaged, ask questions, and collaborate with our teachers to ensure the best possible learning experience for your children. All parents join our Community and Families Association enabling you to connect with our wider community. Together, we can make a significant impact on the growth and development of our young people.

Warm regards,

Mr Neville
