This small but well-established, centrally located primary school balances a truly Dutch education with an international curriculum that teaches English as a second language.

Describing itself as a “Dutch-language school with an international dimension”, Hollandse School (HSL) has been educating Dutch expats in Singapore for nearly 100 years. Located in Bukit Timah, HSL blends the Dutch curriculum with four to six hours of the International Primary Curriculum every week and daily English lessons; the IPC covers various subjects ranging from geography, biology and social studies to arithmetic and language.

The majority of students at HSL comes from the Netherlands and Belgium, and some from Dutch or international schools overseas. Established in 1920, the school is small enough to meet the individual needs of students but large enough to offer children the facilities they need for an all-round education. As well as offering sports lessons on and off the timetable, HSL has an existing programme of after-school activities that includes art lessons, drama, chess, technical Lego, typing, and even circus lessons!

A full review will be posted shortly.
