College life is fully integrated into the life of the local community through a range of social and multicultural services carried out by the students.

Dedicated & Experienced Staff:
Our staff are from diverse backgrounds, enthusiastic about the UWC values and mission, and dedicated to their work. Teachers are much more than classroom teachers. All serve as personal tutors to a group of students and make a specific contribution to the residential nature of the Adriatic College.

They also contribute to the service programmes as leaders or supervisors and provide guidance and support. The teaching staff is recruited internationally and are experienced in the teaching of students at the immediate pre-university level.

Student Testimonials:

“We never thought it would be so wonderful to come back to this special place, Duino. We both had a great opportunity to study at the United World College of the Adriatic and the “Scuola Superiore Internazionale di Musica da Camera del Trio di Trieste“.

Being taught by our solo performance teachers Massimo Belli, Igor Cognolato and Alberto Miodini, we were shaped in such a way which enabled us to face new stages of our individual development. We believe that this place, as small as it may be, gives an enormous space to each person who is always on the search and wants to learn more.”

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.
