Feedback from the Prieto and Cherviatsova family

As parents we always want to give the best to our children. We want to see them happy, loved and successful. We want them to be in a safe environment which, at the same time, will stimulate their curiosity, personal development and creativty. It is always a challenge to find a good school. Yet, for expats it is even more problematic. As an international family, we are so happy to have ISG. It gives us everything we need. After joining ISG, we entered a vibrant global community of expat parents that made our adaptation to Belgium more swift.


Feedback from the De Simone family, 

ISG was the main reason why we decided to relocate to Gent and not to Brussels. The staff is welcoming and the children are happy. Teachers work hard so that pupils achieve a high standard of academic knowledge. My son loved ISG from the very first day and he cannot wait for one more year with his friends from all over the world!


Feedback from the Van Goethem family, a local Belgian family, whose daughter spent 1 year at ISG in preparation for a move abroad:

Our daughter had a wonderful year at ISG! She had never been in an English school before and she couldn’t have had a better preparation for our move to another country. Not only was she supported in a great way academically, more importantly it opened her mind to the world on all levels. Last but not least in this short period she made friends for life! 


Feedback from the Alifragkis family whose son spent 4 years at ISG:

ISG is multi-cultural, open-minded and inclusive and was for us our second home in Ghent. It was like being part of a lovely extended family where we could turn for advice and support. 


Feedback from Martinez family from Spain whose 2 children spent 4 years at ISG:

This is the first time that I am beginning to realise that our time in this wonderful city and unfortunately in your fantastic school is over. I take this opportunity to thank you very much for the wonderful and kind treatment that my children and we have received during these four years with you. You have helped to make our stay in this city unforgettable, as I have said several times, we have felt part of a big family, I hope the school will continue to apply these principles!


Feedback from Siegle family from France whose boys spent 2.5 years at ISG:

The ISG is an amazing school which enhanced the cognitive and emotional development of our twin boys. The staff was professional, open-minded and very friendly, and it is with deep regret that we are leaving the school for living in Brussels. We cannot do less than warmly recommend the ISG!


Feedback from Leone family from Italy whose 6 year old daughter spent 4 years at ISG:

We are doing fine here in London, but we still remember the nice period spent in Belgium and Gent. In particular our daughter continues to have very good memories of her time spent at ISG. I would like to inform you that she is doing great academically at the International School of London. In fact she is considered to be the best reader and the second best pupil in math in her class. Obviously this is due to the great teachers, teaching methodology and environment at ISG.

After 4 months spent in another International School, we would like to praise you and your team for your dedication, passion and achievements. It has become pretty clear to us that firstly ISG provides the right culture for pupils to truly enjoy learning - our daughter has always been happy to go to school- and secondly ISG has been able to differentiate teaching for each pupil, according to their need.

We thought it is important for you to receive such feedback and would like to thank you again for all your support.


Feedback from Koch family from Germany and Belgium, whose son Sebastian spent 6 years at ISG

Our son (Belgium/German) had the privilege to be at ISG for 7 years and began in the inaugural year of ISG in 2012 when there were only 9 pupils. We are now moving into another country but our son would have finished his primary schooling at ISG without any hesitation. A school has to adapt to its growth and its ever changing environment, which has not been easy for ISG considering 2 school building moves in the first 4 years of operation. However thanks to a great cooperation between board, principal, teachers, admin staff and all volunteers the school excelled every year to live up to that challenge. We look forward to carefully watch its further development and also how future needs can be met for a secondary school, something in our mind that would absolutely create value for the city of Ghent and the surrounding region.


Feedback from Bramlett family from the US, whose son Myer spent 4 years at ISG

We could not be happier with our ISG experience! We value the teachers' ability to work one-on-one with our student to meet his needs and make educational progress in an effective way. We also value the diversity among students, families, and staff, which provides an education in, and of, itself for our child; helping him think globally and raising his awareness of our world. Thank you for a great experience!


Feedback from Condom-Pujol family from Spain whose 11 year old daughter spent 6 months at ISG:

Magnifica experiencia ISG Gent. Cuando uno esta fuera de casa se agradece el trato familiar y ser bien acogidos, felicidades por vuestro trabajo.

Feedback from the Vertriest family

We would like to thank you all for what has been an amazing Early Childhood Education experience for our children. They truly felt safe and cared for and were excited to come to school everyday. ISG is a special school with a special community and we are grateful to have experienced it.


Feedback from the Gregor family

Teachers are professional and making great effort to explain and teach kids. Very in depth preparations and variety of things to introduce IPC topic. Appreciate the way the final exit point is presented to parents. Wonderful interactions between children when older kids are supporting and helping younger children. It's opening for kids their future ability to deal and understand other people from different cultures.

A visionary place that teaches our kids what they need most in this era. Understanding and accepting of all cultures and getting the best from them. Not only Expats, but also Belgian families, finally have a high profile international school they can send their kids to with a guarantee for a visionary, caring education run by professionals that love their job!

ISG has been key to a tremendous positive development in our daughter even after only one year. She has progressed remarkably in English language, mathematics, science and in social and communication skills. Where as before she resented going to school, she now eagerly looks forward to learning more.

Young kids come to this place to explore the diversity of our world. They will find out people speak different languages, eat different food, have different culture. But, in the end, we all seek the same common goal, a happy life.

Open and friendly atmosphere. Individual approach for your child. You can see that the children, parents and teachers are happy. The staff put your child first, which is not the case at every school. High standard of teaching. Small groups and staff care. Sending our children to this school was the best thing we could do for them as parents in Ghent. High standard of education and happy atmosphere!
