Performance Rating of Dutch Secondary Schools

How do secondary schools in the Netherlands compare, in terms of performance? To what degree is its average central exam output higher or lower than a predetermined minimum standard? And if we look at the entrance level of the pupils, can we speak of added value or of lost potential? The annual School Performance Rating, now published by De Volkskrant, is designed to give answers to these questions.

The School Performance Rating uses publicly available data provided by the Dutch Education Inspectorate. On this website you will find all the information needed on the annual School Performance Rating, and how the calculation of the various scores comes about. It is also possible to download a more comprehensive overview of all the data.
