Sekolah Indonesia Nederland (SIN) was set up on 15 June 1965. At that time, the school was located at the Violenweg 13, The Hague. It was formally inaugurated by the then His Excellency Ambassador, Mr. Soedjarwo Tjondronegoro, which took place at the Rijksstraatweg 679, 2245 CB, Wassenaar on 17 August 1965. The Committee for Indonesian School and Culture (Badan Usaha Sekolah dan Budaya Indonesia, or BASUKI) was assigned to carry out the preparation for the establishment. Based on the Decision of the Minister of Education and Culture on 15 August 1995, the name of Sekolah Indonesia di Nederland (SIN) was converted to Sekolah Kedutaan Republik Indonesia di Wassenaar, Nederland. However, its abbreviation, SIN, unchanged. After a few years, the name was then reconverted to Sekolah Indonesia Nederland.

Then the BASUKI was replaced by the Advisory Body of Indonesian School and Culture (Badan Pembina Sekolah dan Kebudayaan Indonesia, or BPSKI). Considering the more important role of SIN, in 1972, BPSKI was changed to the Advisory Body of Indonesian School (Badan Pembina Sekolah Indonesia, or BPSI), and from 1993 until 2012 BPSI has been chaired (ex-officio) by the Deputy Head of Mission of the Republic of Indonesia Embassy in The Hague.

At the beginning of its foundation, SIN status had been a private assistance institution. Then in 1981, based on the Joint Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture and Minister of Foreign Affairs No. 191/81/01 and 051/U/1981 of 22 January 1981 concerning the Guidelines for the Management of Indonesian Schools Abroad, SIN was regarded as a private assistance school.

Since recently, SIN has been allowed to administer its own final examination similar to the privilege given to the public schools in Indonesia.
