Bogaerts International School is a vibrant, internationally-minded, family-oriented K-12 school located in The Domain of Brakes (Uccle). This area is classed as semi-urban and has a natural green area. The school is located at Brussels' doorstep, but the campus itself is a quiet and secluded wooded area.
