Toelichting van de school

The international curriculum offered by the AICS has a totally different structure than the education offered in mainstream Dutch Primary and Secondary schools. Therefore, it is not possible to provide an accurate reflection of student performance according to Dutch criteria.

Hoe gebruikt deze school tussentijdse toetsen?

Toelichting van de school

Assessment at the AICS is an ongoing process. Teachers collect and interpret evidence to decide where the students are in their learning, where they need to go, and how best to get there.  

The teachers engage in:

  • Formative assessments: the children’s everyday work is being monitored in an unobtrusive manner through an initiative called Learning Spectrums.
  • Learning Continuums: we carefully follow the conceptual development and intrinsic motivational factors of the learning process including personal development, learning to learn, literacy and later in the academic year in numeracy too. The Continuums allow teachers to differentiate instruction appropriately to the level of the individual student and allow parents to see progression more clearly.
  • Standardised testing: a way of assessing children within an age group to see if they are making appropriate developmental progress in relation to a majority of children of their age. We carry out standardised testing in May and we endeavour to ensure that our approach is not stressful to the students and that they have a positive experience of testing. Our standardised tests look at development in numeracy and literacy.   

This data can be discussed with the classroom teacher at any time but it is also regularly reported on.

Toelichting van de school

The international curriculum works with a different system and structure than the education offered in mainstream Dutch Primary and Secondary Schools. However, it is our aim to facilitate a smooth transfer for students between our school and further education, albeit in the Netherlands or abroad.

The AICS provides both Primary and Secondary education, therefore the internal communication between the Primary and Secondary levels is more intensive and we can facilitate a warm transfer from Primary to Secondary School. In Secondary School, the AICS offers the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
