A friend of mine's daughter went to the Montessori in Tervuren until she was nine and learned sweet FA (she had to have extra coaching when she went back to UK to get her up to speed). She also learned NO FRENCH AT ALL, as her group was about 85% anglophone, so they all spoke English. She also managed to escape twice without them noticing and went home! Others may have better experiences.

It is like a little piece of heaven for children to come here each day. My children are mother tongue English speakers and are now fluent French speakers and at a very good level in reading, writing French (doing independent research and studies in both languages). The classes have a low teacher/student ratio and the lessons are given in small groups. It is an International Baccalaureate accredited school at the Secondary level, so the curricular standard for all of the ages is very high.

I have been with this school for years together and never heard anyone escaping .My children are enjoying the atmosphere, resources and individual attention provided by wonderful teachers, whether it is English or French. I am still a parent associated with this school. So if you have any questions regarding it, I will be very happy to answer you.

I have been associated with the Montessori School in Tervuren for more than 6 years and never heard anyone escaping. My children are now in Primary and are very happy with the resources and attention provided by the wonderful teachers, whether it is English or French. I am still with this amazing school , and can help if anyone has some questions about it. I love the approach of this school to the children.

If you have the chance to go there, you really should go !
It develops autonomy, self esteem, motivation, communication, independence, responsibility and decisions making
I'm really happy about it !

This is an amazing school that helps children to understand their importance on the future generations. Teachers are totally dedicated to the children from the toddlers community to the middle schoolers and the diploma program !
I advise it !

The information on the site is out of date. The school is in the second year of offering the international baccalaureate for pupils up until age 18/19. It's a fabulous school with low pupil teacher ratios and with a strong philosophy of developing kids in the round rather than just academically. I would never hesitate to recommend it. It's a small school so does not offer a canteen but children and teachers often cook together which is a great experience for them. It also doesn't need a parents association in the same way as larger schools but there is plenty of opportunity for contact with the administration and teaching staff through an extensive timetable of extracurricular events.

Great school! Have had my children here for the past 8 years (toddler to Secondary) and am amazed every year. Kids doing stuff I didn't learn until high school and university. Wish I could have had this kind of school when I was growing up.

I do not recommend the Montessori approach in general for middle and high school. Classes are all over the place and students lack basic skills to move forward. Primary is ok.

Teacher do not follow any curriculum or standards at all. They do not teach, just "follow the child". Beautiful rooms, materials and gardens.

Wonderful school! I myself have been to international schools but this school is the future of education!

Awful school with low quality teaching for the Secondary programmes, and teachers that turn a blind eye to students who are struggling with mental health issues, bullying from other classmates, and who critic unconventional ways of thinking.

The facilities are lacking, and there are no extracurricular programmes or college counselling for the kids. All responsibility falls on the parents.

It's a perfect school for young kids in the Children House, and Upper Primary where the teachers are attentive, supportive and involved in the learning process.

However, if you're planning on putting your kid in the secondary programme, go to another school where the quality of teaching is higher, and there is support for the students.
