International School of Brussels

In what town or city is this school located?

Brussels

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

40% American and a wide variation of other countries. I believe anywhere around 70 countries from around the world are represented.

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Pre-K to 12th Grade

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most children take the bus to school. They have at least 30 buses to transport children. I live in Waterloo within walking distance of St. John's International School.

This school has from rock climbing to a gymnastics program. They also have all the U.S. team sports available. The coaches and facilites are all excellent. You can see the money spent is well spent to improve fields and everything seems organized.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

My child needed special help with a learning disability. She went from a "C" student at ISB to a high "B" average. She was given all the extra help I could have wished for.

P.T.O. is very strong and volunteerism is luckily at a high.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

This school is well organized. I feel any special needs are met by an excellent staff. Problems are not hidden. As parents we receive notification regarding any serious problems in the upper grades and how they are handled. The school maintains a safe atmosphere where all students are treated with respect.
