Tips for success:

This young man attends a small K-8 school for gifted and talented students. He was a smart and attentive, and generally pleasant young man with a lot of curiosity and academic ambition. He was also was little bit quirky and goofy. And he had a small, tight-knit group of friends who were as quirky and goofy as he. His primary extracurricular talent was piano. He could pound out technically perfect and emotionally wrenching Beethoven sonata as if he were eating a peanut butter sandwich. When choosing high schools, I encourage him to consider the IB program at school across town. There he would be among a small, tight-knit group of academically focused students. And where he could thrive within the relatively stricter confines of the IB diploma program. He eventually went on to major in computer science at the University of Chicago. Strong musical and theater talent from a young age. Nick attended the same small K-8 school, where he had many friends. As a socially gregarious youth, Nick had nevertheless outgrown the social limitations of his small school. He was itching for new challenges. Additionally, schools with IB program were relatively weak in their music and drama offerings. His other choice was a large public high school with a Grammy-award winning fine arts program with three different orchestras, four different bands, and six different choirs. He could also take an enormous variety of AP courses. Including music theory and juggle responsibility of taking on lead roles in annual musical. After taking 12 AP courses and earning 35 o ACT, Nick won several performing arts and academic scholarships at highly selective liberal arts colleges. He majored in music with minor in Spanish. He studied history in Spain and won a research scholarship to study music in Cuba. Both Andrew and Nick chose programs that would make their high school experiences comfortable and successful. They were able to enjoy high school and perform to the highest level. And they both succeed in their own way. In both cases, it was not particular curriculum that made them successful. Rather, it was self-understanding of their personal priorities that enabled them to get the most out of their high school experience.

Secondary education in the Netherlands

Well, here are some other personal observations. Factor which expat parents might not think to consider but which will have considerable impact on their daily life is schools lunch policy. Most Dutch primary schools expect children to have lunch at home, not that convenient for working parents or if primary school is too far to bike or walk to from home. Another factor for expats to consider is that typically no extra curricular activities are through Dutch schools. Dutch children learn their preferred sports at local sports clubs, which typically means a lot of ferrying around in a car. Similarly, music lessons have to be arranged privately. This also means that, with no extra curricular activities on the agenda, school day in Dutch schools is good hour or two less than, for example, in English schools. And whilst there are some after-school clubs, these are by no means widespread. Finally, and perhaps most controversially, some expats consider as a negative point for Dutch schools that children are not disciplined sufficiently. We have even heard of Dutch parents sending their children to English school in the Netherlands to acquire, for want of better expression, manners and graces. This is, of course, something that is very subjective, but if your idea of a good school is somewhere with boys and girls in hats and blazers who stand up whenever their teacher enters or leaves the classroom, then you will have difficulty finding that in the Netherlands and will almost certainly have to look to International private sector. Perhaps the more relaxed demeanour of Dutch schoolchildren brings us back to the results of the survey-and happiest children in Europe!

Meeting people and making friends

Most children will find it hard to make friends sometimes. If your child is finding it hard, there are a few things you can try. Sometimes simple social reminders might help. For example, you could encourage your child to introduce herself when she meets new children-Hello, I Kaia. Whats your name? Often children make friends at school through playing the same game together-But it is hard if you dont know the rules. You could make sure your child knows the rules of games he wants to join in with. If he doesnt like games other children are playing, you could suggest he start a game that he does like by asking classmates to play it with him. Some schools have a buddy system, where younger students have older students as their buddy for a year. If your child needs help finding her friends or isnt sure of what to do, she could try asking her older buddy for help. If your child has special needs, he might also need extra help with his friendships. You could try making friends with other parents and getting together after school at playground. Give other parents and children some ideas on how to include your child. For example, Bill loves watching people play soccer. He can throw the ball in and be a scorer. If your child finds it hard to make friends at school, you could look for extracurricular activities to give your child opportunities to meet children with similar interests. There are lots of things your child could try-sports, dance, art classes, Scouts and so on.
