Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The Netherlands International School Lagos is a non-profit small-scale primary school in Victoria Island with a friendly atmosphere. NISL is located in a prime spot in the former Dutch Consulate residential compound in Lagos, Nigeria.
At NISL, children aged 20 months to 11 years old are taught the Dutch, British and International Primary curriculum in Dutch and English languages. Children of all nationalities, religion and cultural background are welcome and we celebrate diversity; not being a faith school in fact helps us to learn about and embrace ALL beliefs. We are a community based school with an open door approach and strong home-school relations.

Teaching approach of the school

NISL's teachers are driven, qualified and attentive to the needs of every child. In small groups NISL uses latest teaching techniques. Differentiation is on the forefront of our minds. We teach through play in our younger years and use the UK EYFS Framework to explore the seven key areas of learning and development.

As children get older (whether in the Dutch Stream or English Stream) we focus on our slogan “Learning for Life” and encourage application of skills and understanding rather than only knowledge and rote learning.

Learning for us must have a purpose!

We cater to children with Special Educational Needs and have now grown into full Primary so work closely with like-minded Secondary Schools to ensure a smooth transition.

For each level and for each child; NISL provides the right education.
