Dutch secondary schools with a bilingual stream

Here you find information and a list of secondary schools offering bilingual education in Dutch and English located in The Hague region.

What is 'Tweetalig Onderwijs' (TTO)?

In Dutch TTO stands for 'Tweetalig Onderwijs' and can be translated as bilingual education. This means that a number of subjects are taught in English. Not only English classes, but also history, geography, math, physics, biology, chemistry, economics, IT, arts, music, physical education and the mentor class are all taught in English.

The aim is that through this manner of teaching, English will become a natural second language. This form of education spans the complete six years at the VWO (pre-university) level. In the upper school (last three years) students are preparing to sit their final examinations in Dutch, but wherever possible at this level some lessons continue to be taught in English. Bilingual students also have the opportunity to sit the internationally recognised International Baccalaureate English A2 Certificate. A successful result qualifies students to enroll at English speaking universities.

As well as having approximately half their classes given in English, students are also offered a large choice of international activities, such as exchange programs with schools abroad.
