Find schools

Maybe you are about to find and choose a suitable school for your children or maybe you are a professional in the educational system curious about the quality of schools in comparison to the one you are working at.

Find schools

On the Dutch website of the Inspectorate of Education, you can find primary and secondary schools, schools for special education and higher education in The Netherlands. If there are reports and quality assessments to be found on schools, this is where you will find them outlined per school. 

Since the results are published only on the Dutch website, we will explain on this page how to use the website and how to find schools in a particular area.
