Schools in the NetherlandsThese are the schools that English-speaking expats consider in Arnhem (but may not necessarily choose).

As often happens in a Guide written by expats and parents ever on the move, our editor for Arnhem was re-posted before she could complete this section. 

Until we replace her, we hope the article on schools and list of schools will help you with your search. From interviews with parents and her research thus far, our editor intended to cover (but had not yet visited) the schools we've noted with " - pending".
