Quality Education The International School Ghent strives to provide all children with the quality education and individualised attention they need. Quality - in all its dimensions - is at the core of ISG’s educational programme. The best elements of existing international standards, programmes and practices have been combined with our own modules and integrated into a unique design. ISG’s Board of Directors is supported by an Advisory Board. This committee consists of high level experts and experienced educational practitioners. They will monitor ISG's educational achievements and provide advice concerning the curriculum, selection of teaching staff, educational innovation, and all other areas that affect the quality of education and learning at the school. ISG currently offers pre-primary education and grades one through six. Our language of tuition is English; however, children will also receive Dutch language lessons, with French lessons to follow in the highest grades. In the years to come, a middle school and high school programme will be added. In the meantime, ISG will offer a flawless transition to secondary education in other international or Flemish schools. An innovative feature of ISG is our close cooperation with a dynamic local partner school, De Kleine Icarus. Both schools will share facilities, services and will cooperate in particular educational projects and extra-curricular activities. This unique cooperation model will provide considerable added educational value and will also encourage the integration of expatriate children and their parents into the local community.
