Welcome to the only Dutch speaking Primary school in Egypt! The Dutch Stream is an integral part of NCBIS. We are a bilingual school, offering Dutch Primary education using both Dutch and English as the language of instruction. Our aim is to enable our students to continue their education in both Dutch and English speaking schools, when they move on. It is our experience that our students make this transition easily, in both languages.
Dutch and English are taught as a first language. We work closely together with the British Primary School of NCBIS. Both streams follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), a course of study which ‘prepares students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning’. Both schools follow their respective national curriculums for language (Dutch and English) and Mathematics, but apply the PYP pedagogical approach of inquiry based learning to these areas of the curriculum where possible. In each case the school has adapted these curriculum requirements to its international setting to ensure its relevance to our student population.
