Kleine Brogel ES Vision

Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day, Everywhere.


Kleine Brogel Elementary School (KBES) is a small school supporting the American children of the USAF personnel stationed at Kleine Brogel Air Base, Belgium. The school was founded over 30 years ago and continues to serve children from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade in multi-age classrooms. KBES shares a complex with the local Belgian elementary school. Meeuwen, a city in the province of Limburg, is in northeastern Belgium, near the borders of Germany and Netherlands. Meeuwen is about 30 miles south of Eindhoven, Netherlands, and about 60 miles east of Brussels, Belgium. Kleine Brogel Air Base, about eight miles from Meeuwen, is a small base with no housing. American families have the unique opportunity to live in the Dutch-speaking Belgian community. Military support facilities include a small shoppette and an all-ranks club.We maintain a relationship with our neighboring DoDEA school, AFNORTH Elementary, Middle and High School. After our students are promoted from the 5th grade, they attend AFNORTH Middle School located in Brunssum, Netherlands, approximately 30 miles east of KBES. We also share certain administrative and educational support services with the AFNORTH International School. KBES is a member of the Isles District in the DoDDS Europe area of the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA).
