EIM is a secular, co-educational international school. Based in the very heart of Brussels and close to European and international institutions, EIM offers a PYP, MYP and DP education in both English, and in English and French languages. Already accredited for the IB Diploma Programme, EIM is on track to become accredited for both PYP and MYP programmes in 2020.
EIM is able to offer a warm, welcoming environment for students and parents, whether new to Belgium or to the school. We encourage the development of individual skills that lead to successful outcomes, personal and academic, as embodied in the ten aspects of the IB learner profile. The education model at EIM is student-centred. With a maximum of fifteen students per class, EIM incorporates the values that IB promotes and stimulates each student's innate abilities and interests while developing new areas of learning. Thus, the IB culture and character supports EIM's outlook.
EIM's student population is mostly composed of expatriates from diplomatic or international families; additionally, long-term resident expat and Belgian families send their children to EIM. We foster bridge-building between cultures, societies and personal outlook, a necessary attitude for today's world. Openness and acceptance of others are aspects that we cultivate in our community activities, which range from serving charities in Belgium to organising donations for, and visits to a children's home in Moldova every year. This aspect underpins once more our activities with the DP CAS students in their project work.
Regular local and international trips are embedded as part of the students' IB studies. EIM is particularly active in theatre and the visual arts with biannual performances and exhibitions in well known historic, prestigious Brussels theatres.
EIM is in a phase of growth but is still able to offer close contact with and attention to students of all years and subjects, giving individual support and differentiation where needed. We have agreements with university libraries in Brussels, enabling our secondary students to use their facilities; we have access to large sports facilities for a full range of sports lessons. We offer a hot lunch programme, after-school garderie service for primary students and a home-school bus service. Our uniform serves to give identity and a sense of belonging to our students.
Additionally, EIM is a Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing Centre and runs university assessments for Oxford, Cambridge and other UK universities for both internal EIM and external students.
