we are considering moving to Brussels and are looking at options for the our kids' schools. We have an 8 and 6 year old who are currently at an English-speaking school.

We are already a trilingual family with Italian and Spanish spoken at home and English at school. I am weary of introducing a new language French but affordable school options don't seem many in Brussels.

I am considering Lycee Franciase for the bilingual program.

Does anyone know ACE of Brussels??

Another option is BIS Bogaerts, but this already so pricy!

Please advice!!

Hi Chiara,

Have you considered an English-speaking international school? Fees can be high but some schools may have bursary and financial aid programs in place, which is worth enquiring about.

You may find the following website useful as well: It lists all of the city's international schools, including parent reviews and prices.

Best of luck.

Hello Chiara,

I hope you have found your school ! As you said, international schools in Brussels are generally pricy but some of them a little more affordable. All the schools are placed in categories. So it's easier to find what you are looking for. 

I hope it will help too :-)
