About the AICS

The AICS is the first Dutch International Primary and Secondary School in Amsterdam.  Together with a number of other schools we form the ‘Esprit Scholengroep’.  The AICS is subsidised by the Dutch government, which enables us to deliver high quality education at competitive fees.

Currently the school offers primary education to students aged 4 – 10 and secondary education to students aged 11 – 19. The main language of instruction for classes is English. After several moves since the start of the school in 2003, the AICS is now located in three buildings: Main (primary and secondary, about 1100 students), Satellite (primary only, about 200 students) and South East (primary and secondary, about 125 students).
