The school’s international character can be seen in its bilingual French/English programme, but also in the profile of its students, who represent more than 40 nationalities.
Montgomery International School: an international school at the centre of Europe
The Montgomery International School is located in a former townhouse dating from the 20th century. The setting is ideal for educating students: the classrooms have retained traces of the riches that built the reputations of the great houses of Brussels. In this old mansion, you can still feel the character of the ‘family home’ that the building housed when it was first used.
From the start of primary school, the children learn English with a specialist method based on games, or through artistic and recreational activities. Secondary-age pupils follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. From the first year of secondary school, 40% of students’ lessons are given in English. From the third year, the students can choose to follow a scientific or literary path. The Montgomery International School places great importance on the study of languages in addition to English; students can take classes in Chinese, Spanish and Dutch. Many activities are provided, both at the school and outside, including museum or theatre trips, weekends at the seaside, school trips and humanitarian missions.
The Montgomery International School also collaborates with Belgian universities such as the ULB and KUL, and those abroad such as the universities of Chicago, Cambridge, Tokyo and Maastricht. Representatives from these universities come to the School every year to meet with students.
This school is situated just around the corner from the European institutions, 50 metres from Montgomery Square. It is easily accessible by public transport (metro, tram and bus). From the start of the new term in 2018, the school will also arrange a school transport service for those parents who desire it.
