Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Bogaerts International School is committed to developing students who are internationally minded, independent, and enthusiastic about life and learning. Our school strives for excellence in a happy, caring community founded on integrity and respect.

Teaching approach of the school

Our goal is to break the stereotypical school system mould of overcrowded classrooms, teachers that are not committed, and students who get lost in the maze. As such, our main goal is to instil a desire to learn; to nurture students' curiosity and enthusiasm about the world and 'things' out there.
We believe this begins by empowering students – showing them that teaching is not preaching and that their education is a collaborative effort.

In practice, teachers engage with students both as a group and one-on-one.
Generally, teachers lecture for a maximum of 20 minutes before 'getting their hands dirty' and working alongside the students.

This allows teachers to not only keep tabs on the level of each student continually but also maximises the chances for teachers to quickly catch students who may not have fully grasped a concept. Finally, this method also allows each student to work at his/her own pace, all while continually moving forward.

We refer in sporting terms as one way of explaining our method. In essence, we "train" students because each student is unique. In treating each student as a unique person, we can tailor the pace and rigour of lessons. We have seen this method work extremely well, as it has been the cornerstone of the Brussels School's education for the past 30 years.

We intend to apply this method very carefully. Consequently, our junior motto is: "More at school, less at home!" We encourage students to put in a maximum effort at school from 8:15 am until 3:15 pm, with a reward of having less homework when they do so.
