These are the schools that English-speaking expats consider in Amsterdam (but may not necessarily choose).
Out of all the schools concerned, we have already identified the really good ones, and put the banner “ -pending” by their names below (meaning from what we already know, these schools warrant review by the GSGI but are still pending visits and confirmation).
We select these banner schools after conducting extensive parent interviews. Our Amsterdam editor then personally researches each school, visits and meets the head, and writes the full review,
