The Lycée français Vincent van Gogh of The Hague-Amsterdam is a member establishment of the AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad) network and is directly managed by the Agency. Teaching takes place in accordance with the official instructions and programmes of the French Ministry of Education. Pupils are prepared for examinations within the French secondary education system (brevet, baccalaureate).
The establishment celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017 and is divided between two sites: The Hague, where there is a primary school (preschool and elementary), a collège (lower secondary school) and a lycée (upper secondary school), and Amsterdam, where there is a primary school (preschool and elementary).
The status of the establishment has evolved since its foundation in 1947, now welcoming nearly 1,200 pupils, from PS (first year of preschool – age 3) through to Terminale (final school year).
Its various facilities and departments work towards the full development of its pupils’ personalities, at the same time as engendering independence and a sense of responsibility. Its extended English language offer demonstrates a commitment to making international connections.
