About our International school in brussels

Bogaerts International School is a vibrant, internationally-minded, family-oriented K-12 school located in Le Domaine Latour de Freins (Uccle). This area is classed as semi-urban, and has a natural green area. The school is located at the doorstep of Brussels, but the campus itself is a quiet and secluded wooded area. This gives you access to some of the most enriching culture in Europe while maintaining a pleasant and safe learning environment for your child. We pride ourselves in being able to offer a high-quality education to a diverse community of students, representing both local Belgian families and families from the world over.

Stemming from Bogaerts Education, founded in 1970 by Rodolphe Bogaerts, B.I.S. is the only IB Continuum World School in Brussels, offering a continuum of three programmes of education: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). Our learning community represents over 50 nations, each one in the halls of our campus through our curriculum and events .

a word from our founder

Our school is project-oriented, thus stimulating students to be curious, creative and responsible learners able to combine their own strengths and talents with those of a wide variety of other persons through constructive teamwork. Students are encouraged to develop their own learning preferences, to develop their talents and interests and to develop their personal identity . We see it in our mission not only to prepare for a challenging and complex future, but to participate actively in construing it.
