malgré quelques jeux limite violents dans la cour, j'ai vécu dans ce lycée des moments extraordinaires. C'était comme de vivre dans un campus universitaire bien équipé alors qu'on n'était que des gamins. J'ai eu de très bonnes maîtresses en primaire -surtout Madame Lascar- et de bons profs en 6ème... excepté ma prof d'anglais qui m'a ignorée toute l'année.

LF is great if you know you are likely to change countries and having a child in an AEFE school gives you priority to the rest around the world. The curriculum is what it is, if you're happy with it, then fine for you.

A few disadvantages of LF in Uccle.
1)If you don't live nearby, it can be a long trip in a car or school bus. It also means you won't be living next to classmates. It might mean your children will be limited in what they can do after school for activities, as they might not be back in time!
2) The term dates at LF are different to local school dates and most of the international schools also follow as close as possible local schools dates. It means some holiday weeks at LF, you won't find any stages available or any children's events going on, as everyone else is at school.

The Lycee francais is a safe bet. Although the school has many students, it doesn't have the disadvantages of smaller English speaking primary schools. Their bilingual programme is solid, and if you live in Uccle would highly recommend.

Also an important factor: a lot cheaper than other international schools.

Really a good school! I find the teachers and students there are really friendly and nice! Teaching quality is really high. It's a good one among international schools in Brussels.
(The Chinese learning class there is especially perfect. Highly recommend.)
A few suggestions:
Cuz it's far from the center of Brussels, so if you live far, it's a long way to go there.
LF is an old school, School facilities can be improved
