In this episode Margaret wraps up the process of choosing a middlebare school in Amsterdam. We look at our final school Cygnus Gymnasium in Amsterdam East and discuss organisations that support parents and pupils in secondary school education in Amsterdam, for example OCO (https://www.onderwijsconsument.nl) and Stichting VSA (http://www.stichtingvsa.nl). Also an explainer on how the digital registration lottery system works plus a digression on the Dutch test marking system - just for fun.
