Compulsory education applies in the Netherlands until the age of 18. A student has to attend school every day. The necessary study information for ISK is stated below and provides insight in the following topics:
The following admission standards apply to follow classes at ISK:
The students of the ISK differ significantly in terms of age, pre-education, capacity and cultural background. We therefore work with level groups. Tests are administrated twice a year. Based upon these tests is determined whether students are possibly transferred to another group. The group contains approximately 18 students. Each group has a mentor who provides intensive guidance. The starting groups are mainly educated in the Dutch language. In addition, attention is paid to computer education. In the outflow groups, the students are educated in the subjects biology, English and practical subjects such as technique, care and subjects such as digital skills and sports.
The duration of the education for students at the ISK depends on the individual situation. An education takes, on average, one and a half to two years.
As of the first day, Dutch is the main language spoken within all classes. ISK uses specially developed Dutch language programmes for foreign-language students. In addition to Dutch, a lot of attention is paid to:
All teachers render their advice in April regarding the most suitable form of secondary education for every student in the end groups. The recommendation is based on test results, capacities and a careful consideration of pre-education, proficiency level of the Dutch language and age. In addition, commitment, learning behaviour and progress play an important role. The advice is discussed with students, parents/caregivers or contact persons.
The ISK has six pathways towards outflow, namely:
New students can be registered by completing and sending the application form. The application form can be downloaded here but it is obviously also possible to apply for the form through email or telephone at the administration of the school. Following the receipt of the application form, you will be invited for an intake-interview at the school. After that, an intake procedure follows which will be further explained during the interview.
A large part of the costs for following an education will be paid by the government. However, there are some costs the student has to pay himself, such as the voluntary parental contribution.
We also have a parental contribution of € 50,- for the students. This parental contribution is used to pay for all the extracurricular activities. These activities consist of:
Everyone has to be able to feel and be safe within our school. We have made a number of school agreements and rules within ISK for this purpose, namely:
These four letters stand for:
ISK is never responsible for loss and theft of property of students and teachers. You can always be reached through the administration of the school in the event of urgent matters.
All rights and obligations applicable to you as a student of the school are included in the student charter.
The board of directors, daily management and the employees of the school are not liable for the students losing or breaking any property. We therefore recommend not to bring large amounts of money or valuable goods to school. When a student causes damage to the school, furniture, learning resources, teachers, other students or properties of others, the parents/caregivers are responsible for the damage caused. It is therefore advisable for the parents/caregivers to take out a liability insurance for private persons (statutory liability insurance).
