ISF (International School of Flanders) Waterloo International School offers children between 2 ½ -18 years of age an international education taught in the English language. Our community is truly international, and we embrace individual differences, cultures, and religions, fostering the students' attitudes of understanding, cooperation, honesty, and respect.
We believe that building a child's self-esteem and confidence is paramount. Our small class sizes provide a safe, loving, and secure teaching environment where children receive individual attention and enjoy learning through exploration and discovery. ISF Waterloo has dedicated staff whose positive attitude, energy, and care create a vibrant, happy school where every student strives to reach their full potential academically and as people.
Every one of our teachers is trained in English as an Additional Language. We also teach French daily to every student, and the Belgian education authorities recognize our school. We enjoy the use of modern facilities, including a robust campus-wide wifi network, online resources in every classroom, a modern science lab, a great multi-purpose sports hall, and excellent playgrounds – take a look!

Enable all members of our community to be inspirational role models and committed to our school values. Form mutually beneficial partnerships across our wider educational, cultural, and global community.
We organize Residential trips in the third term of each school year. These are an essential part of the school curriculum. Students develop their social skills by spending time away from home for almost a week. Residential trips have a separate charge and are not compulsory. Last year upper Primary school visited Domaine de Mumbai (http://mambaye.be/fr). Domaine de Mambaye is an outdoor education center located in Spa, in the Ardennes. It is set in a unique natural environment that allows students to participate in a wide range of sport and nature activities and excursions to caves and historical landmarks.
Secondary students will enjoy the benefit of either an adventurous camp where students can enjoy experiential learning activities, hiking, raft-making, orienteering, archery, etc., a cultural and historical discovery of a new city or country or an action-packed skiing trip! Students have a strong voice in determining which residential trip will take place. Residential Trips are open for the entire secondary school, for all students from Year 7 to Year 13. These trips always prove to be an unforgettable experience.
