Florencius is a private school. The reason for choosing private education is to meet a growing need, for tailor-made education i.e. education of a high standard.
As a private school our education system, when compared to regular schools in the Netherlands, could be best described as unique. We ensure that the environment is ideal for effective learning, with small groups (max 8 students*) and a personal development plan for each child.
Florencius offers the most ideal education system with the best possible care for our pupils. Due to the fact that our team comprises of teachers with extra expertise we can offer pupils who are highly gifted, or pupils with extra needs more attention.
(*) In regular Dutch schools there is no class size limit. A number of 28 to 30 students per class is fairly common.
