Welcome to Optimist International School


Welcome to our school!


We are a public school situated in a beautiful open building in Hoofddorp, Floriande, metropolitan region Amsterdam, where we bring out the inner magic of our children. We house both the Dutch and international department.


At the moment we have (limited) availability in all groups. 


Are you curious about our school? We invite you to make an appointment for an acquaintance and to give you a tour of the school. We are happy to discuss possibilities of both our international and Dutch department 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 together with Renencia, one of our trainees. 



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