Welcome to St. John's! St. John’s is regarded by many as one of the best international schools in Europe. But what makes it such a successful school?

First of all, St. John's International School provides an English-language education based on Christian values, demands personal excellence and stimulates individual responsibility within a culturally diverse environment. St. John’s is also a caring environment where students are encouraged to reach their full potential, prepared to think globally, with a commitment to justice and challenged to act responsibly in a consistently changing society. We are an inclusive school, and welcome children of all nationalities, faiths and cultures. 

We are becoming an IB school throughout, with the Primary Years Programme in Elementary School, implementation of the Middle Years Programme in grades 6-10 and the Diploma Programme in grades 11-12. We are also the only school in Belgium offering Advanced Placement (AP) Courses.
