More than a school

ISB is a private school founded in 1951 in Brussels for students grades Preschool to 12. With over 1350 students from 70 countries, it is this diversity that sets us apart and makes ISB a wonderful home for our families.




Learning at ISB

Our goal at ISB is to create independent learners. More than a mission statement, this is reinforced in our curriculum as early as Kindergarten. We understand that students learn best when they have ownership of their goals, progress, and growth. By the time our students reach our Upper School, they are true advocates for their own learning, making independent choices while being fully supported on their journey to graduation and beyond.



State-of-The Art Facilities

At ISB, we are proud to be able to learn and work in a dynamic, safe, and sustainable environment. ISB offers state-of-the art facilities located on a unique 40-acre campus immersed in the beautiful Forêt de Soignes. Located just 10 metres from a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ISB is also perfectly situated to take advantage of all Brussels has to offer by our proximity to the centre. Our students have a unique forest classroom where they can delve deeper into their units of investigation in Science, Social Studies, and Inquiry, as well as learn more about our amazing campus biodiversity.

We rely on the support of our students to keep our campus healthy and safe, and they help our teams with a range of responsibilities - from maintaining our interior plants and looking after our rescue animals, to collecting rainwater and transforming forgotten areas around campus into sustainable gardens bursting with herbs, fruit trees, and sculptures.


I think the global mindset that students are encouraged to find at ISB is one of the most profound lasting impacts. The idea of 'life long learning' and the incredible network that seems to connect us all globally, are also some of the lasting impacts that ISB has had on my life."
