The Dutch School of Southern California is the first and only school in the region providing education in the Dutch language and culture. The school's mission is to provide high quality education in both language and culture to Dutch/Flemish speaking children in Southern California.The Dutch School of Southern California also organizes several cultural events throughout the year. Sinterklaas en Kings-day are already on our calendar.

Opting for Dutch education abroad primarily ensures a good connection with the Dutch / Flemish school system in the event of a return. Dutch education helps your children to maintain their cultural identity. This way they remain connected to their "roots". Furthermore, by keeping track of Dutch/Flemish, they can continue to communicate well with their family and friends abroad.
