Our Curriculum


At Amity International School Amsterdam we place students at the centre of learning. Our programmes are designed to equip our students with the skills necessary to tackle not only the problems of today, but also those of the future.

Accredited IB World School for the Continuum of PYP, MYP and DP

As an accredited International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP), we are committed to offering students ages 3-18 a high-quality learning experience that provides them with the opportunity to explore their passions, develop their own questions and to be challenged in their thinking. Our inquiry-based approach to learning allows students to pursue their curiosity and to build their knowledge, skills and conceptual understanding.

We believe children are skilful communicators and creative problem solvers by nature. Children today need resilience and exceptional critical thinking skills, as well as the confidence to question and reflect. We strive to develop these qualities by creating authentic learning environments and experiences that are both relevant and engaging. 


What we like best about Amity is that the curriculum focuses on developing the student’s independence and curiosity and developing their communication skills, with less emphasis on test taking.   Primary Years 4 Parent

Outdoor learning

Our school is housed in a spectacular building, which has been refitted to the highest standards and provides students with a unique learning environment. The impressive architecture has been utilised to create large, open and multi-functional learning spaces, as well as an indoor gymnasium, music room and a library. Parks and forests surround the glass building which is flooded with natural light and brings the outdoors into the learning spaces. These green spaces also offer exceptional opportunities to integrate learning with the local environment in a natural and safe setting.
