We're planning on relocating to the Netherlands next year, and want to really do our research properly. I hope someone here can help me out. I've been considering sending my kids to a public school (they're both young enough to fit in nicely, I think) and since we haven't decided on where we plan to live, I'd rather settle in an area close to a good school. I will be working in The Hague, and we're quite keen to find a place to stay outside of the city.
Have any expats here sent their kids to a public school? If they are, how are they adapting? I know it varies from kid to kid, but I'd really appreciate any feedback. Also, where around The Hague do you think is a good family area to live? Are there any schools you can recommend?
Haagse Hout is a good family area in The Hague. Have a look at our page on areas and suburbs in The Hague for some more info.
Sorghvliet is a very good school, and there are many other schools in and around The Hague. A good idea is to read reviews online of schools and base your decision around that.
Hope this helped and good luck!
