The school is part of a large school community and is located in Blankenberge, a seaside resort on the Belgian coast.3

Since its inauguration, De Schuit has develop as a dynamic school for children who cannot follow the pace of a mainstream primary school.

Recently, we have also opened a new class for children who fall within the Autism Spectrum Disorder.

We strongly believe in the enhancement of the individual zone of the proximal development in each child. (Vygotski)

It’s part of our pedagogical vision to implement the latest and most forward looking teaching strategies.

We want to model our pupils into strong individual learners so they can function independently in our rapidly changing 21st century society.

The little sailor, pictured in our logo, welcomes each child in the school.
