Welcome to Optimist International School


We have moved!


Our new location is at Waddenweg 87,2134 XL,Hoofddorp, only 1 km from our current location. All school times will remain unchanged - 8am-1.45pm, as well as the bus transport. You can take Bus 341 in front of the school and Bus 300 from Spaarne Hospital Hoofddorp. 



Welcome to our school!

We, the Optimist International School, are a public school situated in a beautiful open building in Hoofddorp, Haarlemmermeer, in the metropolitan region of Amsterdam, where we house both an international and a Dutch department.




At the moment we have availability in all groups. 


Are you curious about our school? We suggest you make an appointment for an acquaintance meeting, including a tour of the school. We are happy to discuss the possibilities of both our international and Dutch departments with you (depending on your plans in the future).


To give you an impression of our school, Jenoah, Akshit, Anushka, Lara and Lorelei made a small movie with the help of Renencia, one of our trainees.



Noord Holland TV made a movie of our opening ceremony on the 11th of April 2018, which gives an impression of Optimist International School.

Diwali Celebrations
13 nov 2018 - Happy Diwali! This week the children have been celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali by making clay lamps and rangoli patterns with the Creative Arts Coordinators, Miss Carrie and Miss Jenny. The children also celebrated Diwali with their class teachers and friends by sharing food and dancing together. We'd like to congratulate the children on their beautiful creations and thank the parents who came to participate. How wonderful to see multiculturalism come to life within our school! We have certainly enjoyed learning more about the festival of light from our students. 


You can find a lot of beautiful pictures of our Diwali celebrations here
