I heard so many good things about the school, but once my children were in, we had a totally different experience. Most teachers in Middle School are very self-centered, there is no alignment in the curriculum, the teachers do not care about the students - they do not trust them, do not respect them. There are no extra-curricular activities beside choir, instrument, and sports. I would not recommend St. John's for children in their Middle School Years (11-14). I heard that the new principal will bring positive change, but that will not happen overnight. Probably need another 3 years to see the difference.

Mom with happy kids

My experience with St. John's in general but also the Middle School has been very positive. It is a very caring school with very experiemced, dedidated teachers and kids are very much encouraged and helped to reach their potential. Great arts and sports opportunities as well!

St John's where kids excel and enjoy learning!

I have been a mother at St John's for 12 years and what an amazing experience this has been for my two kids.
The best thing we ever did was to enroll them here. They are caring positive individuals who are thriving in this environment. The teachers are dedicated throughout the whole school (Elementary, Middle and High )and encourage each student to do their best, The kids encourage each other too which creates a great ambiance. If I could go back to school I would want to go here ! There is a family feel and a great community spirit.
Love St John's.

We could not be happier with the brilliant, exceptional education our daughter has gotten at St John's. The open and inclusive culture of the school, and it's inspiring and highly capable teachers has had a major impact on her as a student and a person. Middle school and high school at St John's has been incredibly good for her, and built on her early education in the US and Italy. The school is a very unique place; warm, encouraging, multi-cultural, full of integrity, and where teachers, staff and family provide a warm welcome and a solid appreciation of learning. It is hard work, teachers are very demanding -- but so impressive to see what St John's students accomplish.

No school is perfect, but I love St Johns! We have had children at the school for a long time and have experienced elementary school to high school. I would send my kids there again in a flash. The vast majority of the teachers were considerate and helpful. The support services in elementary school and high school were tops. Beyond the academics our children enjoyed a variety of sports and arts and thrived in what they did.
St johns has gone through hard times recently, but is bouncing back and the family atmosphere that drew me there is once again present. I highly recommend this school.

My children started at the age of three at St John's International School, one has graduated in the meantime and one is still at St John's. I am extremely happy with the school: very dedicated teachers, great students, close community (the Welcome Committee is a great source of support for the new parents!). If you like to be involved in the school as a volunteer parent you have many possibilities to do so. I also feel that there is something for every student at this school; great academics, competitive sports program, highly ranked Visual & Performing Arts, etc etc. I also love Waterloo!! It really has it all; shops, restaurants, sports clubs, nearby woods and the train brings you to Brussels in 20-30 minutes. I like to fact that my kids always have some friends nearby to play with and are close enough to go to school by themselves for after-school activities and weekend games. Many of my friends who moved away still miss St John's!

Awesome community/school

Our children started in Kindergarten and have worked their way through the elementary school. We have been very pleased as parents with the quality of the education (the PYP program helps children to think outside the box), the variety of programs offered, and the administration. The support of the community has been instrumental in our success here in Belgium. The people you meet become your family and would do anything for you! I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving to the Brussels area!

Going to St.John's is one of the best things any family can do. I was at St.John's for about 3 years and a half and it really helped me self-grow. The community is so welcoming and kind to everyone. The extra-curriculars and clubs are endless; there's something for everyone to do! The teachers are super nice and you make memories that are impossible to make at any other international school. I absolutely love the school and there'll always be a special place for the school in my heart. Due to my move back home, I had to leave, but I would go back IN A HEARTBEAT! Great experiences there! x The canteen also serves deeeeelicious food!

I attended an event at St Johns recently. I was told there are currently 650 students at the school, down from 720 last year and even more the year before that. It seems many students are leaving St Johns.

We have had our kids in the school for last 3 years and I have to say that it is the school with great community, highly motivated teachers and other individuals to bring the best out of each kid. Music, art, sport facilities are excellent, the school embrace diversity. School is also very serious to implement the newest teaching methods, is fully aligned with its values. We love and miss the school and I highly recommend to live that experience.
