Table description


This table contains information about pupils who participate in primary, secondary general and secondary vocational education on the islands of the Caribbean Netherlands. Only education that is funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science is included in the tables. The numbers of pupils are given by region (Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba), by age and gender in primary education and by level (as of the 2014/’15 school year) and gender in secondary general education. As of school year 2019/’20 the students of the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) are added; this vocationally oriented education was introduced as of that school year on St Eustatius and Saba. On account of the introduction of the CVQ-system, there are no longer MBO students as of school year 2021/’22 on St Eustatius and Saba.

As of 10 October 2010, the islands of Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba have the status of ‘special municipalities’ of the Netherlands. The education in the Caribbean Netherlands forms part of the Dutch national education system. The Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science is responsible for education policies.

Data available from: the 2009/'10 school year.

Status of the figures:
Figures over school year 2020/’21 are revised provisional and figures over school year 2021/’22 are provisional figures. All other figures are final.
