Het Rijnlands Lyceum Oegstgeest, located between The Hague and Amsterdam, encompasses an International and a Dutch school. The International School has offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme since August 1983, and in August 1988, the International Department (age 11-18) was introduced. The International Department provides the IB Middle Years Programme, for which it was one of the pilot schools, and the IB Diploma Programme. Most teachers hold the equivalent of an MA or BSc degree. All non-native speakers of the faculty have passed an English language proficiency examination.
The student body in the International School is drawn from 49 nationalities, including about 35% who are Dutch (expatriates). As well as the required CAS and Community and Service programmes, there are many extra-curricular activities. Het Rijnlands Lyceum is one of the five organizing schools of The Hague International Model United Nations.
Built in 1968, the school building has been extended a number of times. The school has 70 classrooms, a large sports field, two gymnasia and a modern, well-equipped sports hall, a recently upgraded media centre and silent workroom, a separate computer room, science labs and a large technology room. There is a boarding facility nearby. Admission is granted after an interview with the applicant and his/her parents or guardians and after the assessment of the applicant's transcripts of the past three years by an admissions committee.
The school year runs from the end of August until the beginning of July.
