Our vision on education
At Van Maerlantlyceum Eindhoven you can truly be yourself, always. Individuality is a core element of our vision on education.
How do we achieve this?
We pay attention to each other
We combine acquiring knowledge with personal growth, self-confidence and developing a sense of responsibility
We stimulate pupils to develop a positive-critical, creative and inquisitive attitude and we have a keen eye for each individual personality
Learning is fun at our school: pupils and staff learn together in a safe, pleasant and open-minded environment
We allow pupils to make mistakes: our school is a secure environment where students are motivated to learn and discover new things together with others
What are we working towards?
A pupil with a Van Maerlant diploma:
has thorough professional knowledge and study skills
has self-confidence and a good sense of responsibility
is positively critical and inquisitive
looks for creative solutions
is not judgmental to the world around him/her
We train you to be ready and fully equipped for your future. You take the necessary steps yourself and we guide you, when things go well but also when the going gets tough. We offer you proper education at a nice high school as the starting point for your further education.
Our strategic themes
- Wide range of subjects
We consciously choose not to over-specialise our education. The school takes the view that a pupil should be able to develop broadly during high school years. We therefore offer a wide range of subjects, with an emphasis on creative subjects and music.
- Safe school
We score high on the topic of social safety. The positive atmosphere at Van Maerlantlyceum, which has traditionally been fuelled by the focus on music and creativity over the years, is an important reason for pupils and parents to choose for our school. Fortunately, bullying is rare; pupils and staff feel safe as socially undesirable incidents hardly ever occur. At our school, you can truly be yourself!
- Focus on the pupil
Pupils are seen and heard at our school. Participating in debates and learning together are important values of our education.
Van Maerlantlyceum has an extensive support structure to optimally assist pupils in their learning process. The support given ranges from mentorship to intensive guidance by a remedial educationalist or experts outside the school.
Conducting research is quintessential to your education at Van Maerlantlyceum. Therefore, curiosity is key. We teach pupils how to properly do scientific research, starting off with small scale projects during the first years up to conducting a larger research project during the final exam years. Curiosity and (self) discovery are core values that are deeply embedded in our education.
