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 PYP and MYP

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 3-19 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. 

Learner profile

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success.

They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.

IB Learner Profile Attributes

Diversity and Inclusivity

We embrace our own cultures and celebrate the cultural diversity that exists both in our local community and in the world. We learn together and from each other, to develop into open-minded, global citizens that make a positive difference. Our school is an international family where people from all corners of the world come together to support and care for one another. It is our ambition for Amity International School Amsterdam to become the hub of the local community and we look forward to welcoming you and your family.

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.

* Only schools authorised by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.
