Bogaerts International School

Bogaerts International School is a vibrant, internationally-minded, family-oriented K-12 school located in the Domaine Latour de Freins (Uccle).

The school is located at the doorstep of Brussels, but the campus itself is a quiet and secluded wooded area. This gives us access to some of the most enriching culture in Europe while maintaining a pleasant and safe learning environment for your child.

We have our 2 daughters at BIS, one in primary and one in secondary. Our daughters are truly happy with the overall system – Great facilities (Classrooms, science labs, lockers, gym, outdoor courts, playground, cafeterias, parking, and many other amenities), Great location, Great faculty, Great curriculum, Great extra-curricular activities and Great language support….

The school’s international bilingual approach is rather unique as both English and French are hands-on and well balanced in every aspect of the student life on campus. From classes, to presentations, to homework and outside-of-the-classroom interactions, our daughters (and all students there, from pre-school, to primary, secondary and IB grade) are using full and correct English and French. While our daughters are from Texas and English is their first language, they had no problem in adapting to the school’s bilingual system of truly reading, speaking and writing in French and English…

We are delighted with the school and highly recommend it to international families…

I really wanted to go to this high school but i didn't got accepted. I have been in this country for less than 2 years and think I wasn't accepted because i am not really good at math.

BIS is a great school! The teachers are really nice and care about the students. Students care about each other. Thanks to this school I have less problems understanding what we have to do.

This school is an excellent reminder that you can find a community and a "home away from home". My children have felt at ease from day one, teachers are excellent, caring and always available to reach any of my demands.
I cannot wait to start this new year in their new facilities!

I've enrolled my child at Bogaerts, and i shall indicate that this is an excellent school, the campus is gorgeous, we are so happy to see our child growing up in such environment. He'd made lots of friends, most of which are locals, hence he won't suffer the painful goodbyes... We came from the UK, Cambridge curriculum to the IB, and my son is very keen to learn, as they do a lot of research, and active learning. The food is also a plus!

A school with top-notch infrastructure and a warm and welcoming learning environment. The school has a diverse community with Students, Parents, Teachers, Staff and Alumni from over 50 different nationalities around the world. The focus is not only on academics but also a wholesome development of students with a wide range of extracurricular activities and sports. A happy child means a happy parent and my daughter is very happy and excited to be a part of this school. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more.
