Virtual Learning

Our School's Building is Closed, Our Learning Continues

Amity International School Amsterdam provides virtual learning for all students. Students will be able to communicate via Seesaw, Managebac and Zoom (Primary Years Students) and Managebac and OneNote (Middle Years Students). We encourage both parents and students to communicate with their teachers in order to determine whether extra help is needed. 

Talk to us about any concerns, we understand that parents are also juggling their own work, access to devices and are not teachers. Most importantly, virtual learning should not create a stressful home situation!
