a word from our founder

Our school is project-oriented, thus stimulating students to be curious, creative and responsible learners able to combine their own strengths and talents with those of a wide variety of other persons through constructive teamwork. Students are encouraged to develop their own learning preferences, to develop their talents and interests and to develop their personal identity . We see it in our mission not only to prepare for a challenging and complex future, but to participate actively in construing it.

We at B.I.S. are all excited to have laughter, cheers and smiles filling the school halls and look forward to welcoming you to our school of Bogaerts family!


I have been a student in BIS since Year 7 (MYP2) and I'm currently finishing my DP2. I can thoroughly say that this school has shaped me to become who I am today. In my time here, I have been able to develop solid relationships with both teachers and students, which is something that I hadn't really experienced in other schools. The teachers are always there to help when needed and they truly understand the students, which was a major aspect that I always appreciated. Overall, I view Bogaerts International School embodying a true international school spirit as well as a school that sets people towards the right direction in life.
"École extraordinaire , à l’écoute et à la bienveillance de chaque élève ! Mon fils est épanoui et heureux d’aller à l’école Bogaert. Il aime apprendre!"

Theo had the privilege to finish his International Baccalaureate at Bogaerts International School during the past two years. He learned so much and expanded his knowledge to a great extent! We shall miss the school very much and cherish the wonderful memories for many years to come. Thank you!
