Looking for Secondary School for my Daughter in Brussels

Hello,

We moved to Brussels with my family recently from Turkey. I need your help for my daughter enrollment to a Belgian school.
- My daughter is 16 years old.
- She has started a French high school (Ecole La Salle St Joseph) in Turkey 2 years ago. (1st year for French language, 2nd year is equivalent to 3th grade in Belgium. So she will be 4th grade
- Her French is at B1 level.
- She can speak Turkish and French (B1) only, no other languages
We started to live in Uccle
Could you please advice me good schools around uccle /Ixelles even other districts.
Thanks for your supports

Where is your work?
I would not recommend Uccle, not too multinational.

Dear
Thanks for your reply
I am working in Uccle Calevoet. We rented a flat at Churchill.
I suppose my daughter will be 4th secondary grade , she is B1 French knowledge and not other language (than Turkish)
I would thank for your advice beforehand
(So far some schools accepted to talk only but some said no for even to talk or give appointment)

NOT College Saint Pierre
Probably not Notre Dame des Champs
These 2 schools are the most academic and therefore will be the least sympathetic and simply too hard for someone with basic French. Also really huge schools.

Athenee Royal Uccle 1
Ma Campagne
Montjoie

A bit out of the area, but doable with change of tram, lovely small school in green area of Ixelles. College Saint-Francois. Additionally this school started English immersion recently from 3rd upwards, so there will be teachers you can communicate with in English, it might mean it's more open to an older student with basic French.

The following schools have classes for new arrivals, your daughter probably won't qualify officially for those classes as I don't think Turkey is seen as "developing" and I am guessing you are not an asylum seeker/refugee, the 2 reasons for being allowed in theses classes, but these schools might be more sympathetic.
