Who are we

Each student at our school works at their own level. After the intake, each student starts in a curriculum appropriate to age, related to native language and educational history. Daily, the student's work is checked by the teacher and will be adjusted when necessary. Can the student do more work, can the student do more difficult assignments, or are we going too fast?


Feeling safe is a primary concern in our school. A student must first feel safe before it comes to learning. We do this by showing a sincere interest in the student. We take the time and calm to get to know the student. In addition, we give a student time to get used to our school and space to be themselves. Because the days at our school have a clear structure, the days are predictable.


After the student feels safe at our school and comes to learning, there is also space for personal growth. we stimulate qualities, personal interests and talents of the students. The teacher pays attention to this in the classroom and also school-wide we organize various activities, such as creative lessons and a workshop day.


Developments in the world affect our enrollment of students. We never know exactly how many students will start at our school in the coming term. This unpredictable stream of students makes our work dynamic and requires flexibility.


Students from all over the world start at our school. We see this diversity as an enrichment. Our students learn to deal with what is their own and what is different, with the things that connect and what sets them apart. We believe that embracing diversity improves student well-being and achievement.


As a team, we are very aware of the diversity of our students. With us, all students are equal. We are the first safe haven for our students in the Netherlands. At the ITK we all work with passion. This makes us as a team proud of how we shape our education every day, together. We work, practice and learn together, each one with their own story. Our students all have in common that they have to learn the Dutch language. This common aspect, connects them.
