I know many of the techers and families at Le Verseau and my daughter will probably go there as well. The fees are geart, it has a good reputation and a very international feel eve though it is a Belgian school.
There are very friendly and happy for people to visit.
It depends on why you are looking at Le Verseau and at what level, whether it would be a good choice. It is NOT a bilingual school, there is a certain amount of English lessons in addition to regular Belgian French Community curriculum, either first language English or second language.
It also depends on where you are living, it's quite a drive from even the southern most parts of Brussels, but if you are really looking for a school where some of the curriculum is in English, then you have to weigh the distance against this, as there is no school quite like this one, at secondary level, in Brussels, the nearest you get in Brussels at primaire and maternelle level is Groupe Scolaire St Agnes (Acacia and Alpha Schools) where there is immersion partly in English.
For secondaire, if you after a highly academic school, then le Verseau would be far from top of the list of Belgian French schools. But if you are after a school where some English is taught, then this is an obvious place to look. Incidently, if you are only after the English so your child can take GGSE English lit or lang, then you can actually take these GCSEs as external candidates at BSB in Tervuren.
