International School Leuven

The International School of Leuven (ISL) announced the start of a major renovation project. ISL will relocate to a newly renovated, state of the art building at an ideal location in Leuven, European Capital of Innovation. The impressive new ISL campus will be established on the Tervuursesteenweg in Heverlee, close to the campus of Arenberg, IMEC and Gasthuisberg Hospital, with easy motorway access and local public transportation links.

Bart Hendrickx, project coordinator of the renovation project states: ‘The new school building will allow the growth of ISL to continue, and confirm its ongoing commitment to bringing outstanding English speaking, international education to children aged 2.5 -12, for decades to come.’

“Our diverse students are truly digital citizens. We help them navigate technology in a positive and productive way. Students now learn differently, they need opportunities to think, to create and to imagine. We give children a motivating reason to learn, communicate and share ideas, and apply their knowledge and skills to impactful projects.”

Carol Bancroft, Head of ISL

The renovation and relocation are made possible thanks to the dedicated support of its founding partners KU Leuven, IMEC, VIB and the City of Leuven. In collaboration with KU Leuven the school aims to place innovation, engineering, technology and creativity high on the learning agenda. The new building will provide the dynamic learning environment needed for the school’s future growth and will offer a permanent home to this much loved school.

The International School of Leuven is a non-profit, English speaking international school, situated at the heart of Belgium in Flanders. It provides a warm learning environment for its students, building confident, knowledgeable and caring global citizens. An inquiry based, English language curriculum, challenges all students to develop academically, personally and creatively, offering students the transferable skills necessary for mobile families. ISL is accepting applications for the school year 2022/23. For further details please contact admissions@isleuven.org.
