International School of Florence:
With two locations, in Bagno a Ripoli, just south of Florence, and on the south side of the Arno in Florence in the Tuscany region of northern Italy, the International School of Florence is one of the oldest international schools in Europe. Originally catering to an international, Anglophone community, in the more than 57 intervening years, it has grown and changed, developing into a model international school. Among the programs offered are the International Baccalaureate Organisation's Primary Years Program, an integrated Italian equivalency program (grades 1 through 8) for our host country students who wish to prepare for and take the Italian Terza Media exam, and the challenging International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

Academics:
The International School of Florence is organized into three divisions: the Junior School, the Middle School and the High School. The Junior School, including Pre-School, has its own campus in the nearby suburb of Bagno a Ripoli, while the Middle and High Schools share a brand new facility in central Florence. The Schools share some administration and faculty, but each offers an academically challenging curriculum appropriate to the needs of the age group it serves.

The variety and scope of the educational programs permit ISF students to follow an international curriculum or to prepare for Italian state exams, if so desired, and to prepare for university in the US and other countries around the world. The school offers the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP), following the guidelines from the InternatioPhoto of International School in Florencenal Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).

Rome International School
Courses / Programs
Located in the heart of Rome, Lazio, in central-western Italy, Rome International School is a private international school providing an international education for children in nursery to grade 13. RIS has chosen to link with what we believe is the most prestigious of all educational systems, the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). With this is mind we offer the early, primary, middle years and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Students may still follow the two year British National Curriculum GCSE course before taking the IB Diploma program.

Although we firmly consider ourselves an international school, we never forget the language and culture of our host country and appreciate that many of our families still require the guarantee of an excellent preparation for the Italian state exam at the end of Grade 9 (Terza media). For this reason, students receive ample time for Italian lessons in language. Non-Italian students will study and learn to appreciate the Italian language and culture through a parallel course of instruction with our IAL teacher. Students taking a third foreign language may have the opportunity to sit external exams in the secondary school.
