Reasoning for assessment: Large system of schools but need to be more referenced and should be reorganized. Adam McCormick 07:50, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

New Schools[edit]

Does anyone know if the opening of new schools is being considered and where? This could be information for a new section. 00:34, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Good God I hope not. Even a handful of schools committed to bringing up children without a national culture is too many. Ravenhurst 00:55, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
There are plans for Luxembourg II, but a site has not been settled on as far as I know. Ravenhurst, students at the European school (like myself) are educated on the culture of Europe as a whole. There is nothing to stop them acquiring a "national culture" of their own accord, and their parents will often bring them up with one.Matthew CB Allen
Luxembourg II has been officially running since 2004. However, it has been in temporary premises until 2012. (talk) 20:28, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

There are a number of type II 'accredited' schools which have been setup by member states to educate the staff of various EU agencies

   * Scuola per l’Europa Parma – Italie (Type II). Agence: EFSA (European Food Safety Authority)
   * Centre for european Schooling Dunshaughlin – Irlande (Type II). Agence: European Food and Veterinary Office (FVO)
   * School of European Education Héraklion – Grèce (Type II). Agence: ENISA (Agence Européenne chargée de la sécurité des réseaux et de l'information)
   * European Schooling Helsinki – Finlande (Type II). Agence : AEPC (Agence Européenne des Produits Chimiques)
   * Enseignement Européen à Strasbourg - France (Type II). Institutions européennes : Parlement Européen et le Médiateur de l'Union Européenne .

and also type III schools, which seem to be other schools that seek to provide similar schooling, presumably so that they can offer the European Baccalaureate. Maccheek (talk) 13:10, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Private school?[edit]

I realise the European school falls into a rather unique category, but I was under the impression that it was classed as a state school because of the system of entitlement. Can somebody confirm this? At my school in Luxembourg I though it was this status that allowed school infrastructure (buildings, equipment etc.) to be funded by the Luxembourg government. Matthew CB Allen

Matthew, you are fully right. Also, the funding of the school for most of its students comes from public institutions and many teachers are paid by national Ministries of Education. A fee is required for some students, but I think that the correct description is "public school with limited access". I'll change that on the main article. escorial82

Sorry to be picky, but in Britain, a 'public school' is a private school so maybe it's better to call it a government-funded school? Jwpkanutin (talk) 08:30, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Irrelevant information[edit]

The CoSup presidency names are totally useless and irrelevant here, on the verge of "personal ambition"... The Wiki reader certainly does not need them. I think of deleting them. If anyone is againist this, please discuss it here to see what we may do. If no one opposes this, I will delete them in two (2) days from now. --Michael X the White (talk) 17:49, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Students' Achievements and Famous Alumni[edit]

This list was conceived by the 2011-2012 Pupils Committee of the European School of Brussels III. It aims at promoting the value of the education of Europeans Schools and build on their achievements, as other schools do. Bettylella (talk) 16:01, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Achievements and Alumni section[edit]

The "Students' achievements" and "Famous Alumni" sections are inaccurate and smack of self-promotion.

For example, Belgium didn't win the European rugby championship in 2012, so 4 entries in the Achievements section are patently false (or 3, after removing a duplicate entry from there).

Many of the people in the "Famous alumni" section seem non-notable (an heiress? illustrator? random actors and journalists?), and lack references. I suggest either pruning the list or changing this section to just "Alumni". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:47, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Page name (redirect)[edit]

I believe the page's name should be changed to "European Schools" as it talks about the schools' system, and not one school alone. However, that article already exists as a redirect back to here, preventing me from moving it. I propose the redirect and article should be switched around.
