St. John’s International School

 We educate 900 students from more than 60 countries and are widely regarded as one of the best international schools in Europe. Our wonderfully unique school combines the tradition of Christian values (companionship, integrity and respect) with the rigors of a 21st century international education which will inspire, challenge and prepare students in a nurturing, caring environment. 

As we prepare to celebrate our 50th year of serving the expatriate and local communities of the greater Brussels area, we are excited to show you what has made us one of the best schools in all of Europe through our pictures, stories, facts and links contained in this website.

St. John’s English Speaking school was founded in 1964 by the Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ), and throughout the years has built its reputation for excellence on a foundation of exceptional academics, excellence in the visual and performing arts, and inclusive but competitive athletics programs. We are an ecumenical school, open to children of all nationalities, faiths and cultures, with a focus on Christian values which stem from the original FCJ founders. We are happy to have the continued influence and support of the FCJ today as members of the Board of Directors and Board Core Committees.

More than 800 students come from over 50 countries come to St. John’s for an exceptional education. Students from Pre-K through grade 12 engage enthusiastically with teachers on a curriculum based on our own St. John’s Paradigm. More than 75% of our graduates achieve the International Baccalaureate diploma with excellent results. Based on the tradition of excellent IB Diploma results and exceptional college placements, it is evident that St. John’s graduates are well-suited to impact our world. 

Outside of the classroom

Co-curricular programs in the arts and athletics are consistently regarded among the finest in Europe. All St. Johns students have the opportunity to develop their creative abilities in the art studio and in our state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center which includes a 400-seat theater, dance studio, choir and orchestra and practice rooms, stage-building capabilities, and more. 

For the budding athletes, the St. John’s Lions sports teams include students from 6th grade in more than 12 sports, with the high school teams consistently placing in the top finishers in the International School Sports Tournament (ISSTs) to end each season.  Further opportunities for students in Model United Nations, Model NATO, maths and science competitions, economics programs, clubs, field trips and so much more are here to help students engage, grow and serve others.
