About ISB

Learning for the Future


There is no doubt that the strength of ISB, including its ability to withstand the pressure of what is happening in the world around us, lies in its deep sense of community and the legacy that it has built up over time.

We also strongly believe that this is a time to be future-focused, ambitious for our students, and courageous enough to adapt to this new and ever-changing environment.

Whether you are a returning student, a parent choosing the right school for your children in Brussels, or someone interested in future career opportunities, we hope that our site gives a small glimpse of life and learning at this remarkable school in these remarkable times.
