Primary school

Question

I am looking for a primary school in Ixelles for our daughter starting in September 2012 (will be 6 in 2012).  Any advice or recommendations would be welcome.

I

Start from the nearest one from home and look outwards, not limited by commune. Look at after-school clubs, how your child might get themselves there when older (yes 8 year olds often do take themselves to and from school), what size school is, where children go for secondaire, what text books school uses, just try not to listen too much to other people's opinions, check enrolment procedures for all schools, visit as many schools as possible. All Ixelles French schools have a maternelle linked to a primaire, check where the children go from your maternelle, if most do indeed feed into that primaire.
