All European Schools are official educational establishments controlled jointly by the governments of the Member States of the European Union. In all these countries they are legally regarded as public institutions. The mission of the European Schools is to provide a multilingual and multicultural education for nursery, primary and secondary level pupils. The European School system consists of 2 years of early education (Nursery cycle), 5 years of primary and 7 years of secondary education. The curriculum is common to all four schools in Brussels and is centrally controlled by the Board of Inspectors and the Board of Governors. Secondary education is validated by the European Baccalaureate examinations at the end of year 7. The certificate awarded is fully recognised in all the countries of the European Union, as well as in a number of others.
To encourage a sense of community within the European School system, regular events are held including the biennial Eurosport event, a Model European Parliament, and the annual European Schools Science Symposium. The European Schools in Brussels also provide a wide range of extracurricular activities.
