International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Nursery(age5), P1(age7)

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

Most of children get to school by car. There is a school bus but limited offer. But it looks like they will extend the lines in coming years.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Fantastic facilities. They are locared next to biggest forest in Brussels and then school is totally surrounded by nature which enable teachers to bring the kids to open-air classroom! Very spacious playground, mini football filed, tennis court, indoor gym, and secured play area for nursery kids. They offer various activities after school such as football, rugby, art club, taekwondo, wooden craft, circus gym, ballet. And very strong music education varied from singing to all the classical and modern instruments.

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?

They follow European Curriculum in which any child can learn equivalent level of academic subjects of their home countries in Europe and it is often higher level than your home country so that they will not suffer when they go back. Small classes, passionate teachers, and solid chold-centered pedagogical curriculum enable each child to bloom in their ways and their own paces.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Depite of being new, a strong PTA organize many events for its community such as picnic, international day, movie night, etc.

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

I strongly recommend! In this school, teachers including the principal would be proactive to get to know your child and they find out which way your kids learn better so that they seem to habdle different methods to different kids. As a result, a child feel that he/she is considered important so that they are encouraged to be better person and finally achieve high academic skills as well.
