About Us

Nestled in the heart of Rotterdam we at the Rotterdam International Secondary School encourage our students to discover their own talents and get an opportunity to develop them to the fullest. The school provides an invigorating and competitive atmosphere, created by excellent facilities and guidance provided by a highly qualified and dedicated faculty.

We offer an exquisite learning experience for students pursuing IGCSE and IB as well as the Foundation Course.

  • The Foundation Course for grades 6-8 where they study the IMYC (International Middle Years Curriculum)
  • The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for grades 9-10
  • The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) for Grades 11-12


English is our working language and is the medium of instruction. Our school has a dedicated English Additional Language (EAL) resource centre providing specialised training in language skills development. EAL support is available for all students whose first language is not English and need additional language support because of their language background. Our student body represents 82 different nationalities!

The RISS is an affiliate of the Wolfert van Borselen School Group and offers students the opportunity to study in English while experiencing Dutch culture and language, which provides an environment where students can become truly exceptional individuals and learn about different cultures at the same time.

Due to an increase in the number of students we now have two campuses: a Junior Campus for grades 6-10 and a Senior campus for grades 11-12.

We are happy to answer your questions and invite you to be a part of our community!
