International schools in Brussels have flourished in response to the city's role as one of the major capitals of the European Union, hosting a vibrant international community. This diversity is reflected in the wide range of international schools available in the city.

Many expats move to Brussels to occupy positions in one of the numerous global organisations headquartered in Belgium. As these positions tend to be transient in nature, international schools remain the most obvious choice for expat parents who want their children to continue with their home country's curriculum during their limited time abroad.

It follows that more than just a handful of these schools have sprung up in and around the city, offering expats plenty of options to choose from.
