Belgium education: Montgomery International School in full expansion

Ecole Montgomery

Our latest Belgium education article looks at an international school that just keeps growing.

Located in the heart of Brussels, close to the major European Institutions, EIM offers young people aged 5 to 18 a bilingual French/English IB (International Baccalaureate) programme from the first primary class. Subsequently, students have the opportunity to choose a programme entirely in English from the first year of secondary school.

In September 2021, the Montgomery International School inaugurated its new ‘Broqueville Campus’ located a few steps from Montgomery Square. There are five new classrooms, a black box theatre and a modern study space.

There has been important growth for this school which has no fewer than 35 different nationalities and an international environment. And there is a good reason for this: young people increasingly want to study abroad (the Netherlands, England, Italy, etc..), and families often value an education in English even if 10% of students remain to study in Belgian universities. Many international families also opt for EIM since it is located in the city and easy to access for students who travel by public transport.

But above all, EIM is attractive for its 100% success rate in the IB Diploma Programme (at the end of secondary school). As Danielle Franzen, Director of EIM, says: “In the end, the programmes offered by EIM are very appealing for all families who are looking for a quality education and school environment right at the heart of Europe. EIM’s further development is not about to slow down!”
