St. John’s is a wonderfully unique educational institution which combines the values of companionship, integrity and respect with the rigours of a 21st century international education. We celebrate diversity and have more than 60 nationalities and 39 languages represented at the school. We seek to inspire, challenge and prepare students within the framework of a nurturing, caring ‘family’ environment.

For more than 50 years, St. John’s has been serving the expatriate and local communities of the greater Brussels area. We are proud of the impact that we have had on generations of students. The school was founded in 1964 and throughout the years has built its reputation for excellence on a foundation of exceptional academic programs as well as athletics and the visual and performing arts.

Co-curricular programs are a vital part of the St. John’s educational experience. Our arts and athletics activities are consistently regarded among the finest in Europe. All St. John’s students have the opportunity to develop their creative abilities in the art studio as well as in our superb Performing Arts Center, which includes a 400-seat theatre and reception area, dance studio, choir, orchestra, music and practice rooms. For the budding athletes, the St. John’s Lions sports teams involve students from 6th grade in more than 12 sports, with the high school teams consistently well-placed in the International School Sports Tournament (ISSTs) at the end of each season. There are further opportunities for students in Model United Nations (MUN), Model NATO, the International Awards program, maths and science competitions, economics programs, clubs, field trips and so much more. In this way, our students learn to engage, grow, help and serve others.

We are known for our very welcoming and engaged community which makes integration into St. John’s as a new family very smooth and easy. Here are some of the comments we recently received from St. John’s parents:
“St. John’s school staff are people who care about not only the school and the community but for each individual child. You are not just a number at this school – you are special.”
“The St. John’s experience is something every child should be offered. For us, it has been a dream come true.”

It would be our pleasure to welcome you to our school!
