The former Émile André School was the first public school for girls, established in 1878 by the Association for the Instruction and Education of Women. Initially in the former convent of the "Black Sisters", it was taken over by the City of Brussels which, when looking for new premises for the school around 1900, turned to the architect Henri Jacobs (1864-1935). Having designed around 15 schools in the Brussels region, Jacobs applied himself with the utmost care to meeting the needs of such educational establishments, notably in terms of ventilation and natural and artificial lighting, as exemplified by the remarkable Art Nouveau lamps in the recreational area. The rational layout and harmonious materials contribute to making this school a model of its kind.
