Founded in 1958, International School of Milan has developed an
international curriculum based on the British school system and
is now working towards implementation of PYP and MYP. In the Lower
School, classes are self-contained with an emphasis on group and
individual instruction under the supervision of the class teacher
and specialist support staff.
The Middle School is a transitional phase for young adolescents
with gradual development from a curriculum delivered by the class
teacher to one built around special subject tuition. Support and
personal counselling are central features of the Middle School.
The High School at the International School of Milan leads to IB
or the school's own diploma which is obtained through IB certificate
options. Some students prepare College Board tests, and assistance
is available for Italian elementary and middle school exams. Computers
are used across the curriculum from an early age. Each school site
has a specialist ESL teacher and access to professional counsellors.
The International School of Milan is staffed by qualified teachers
and the average length of service at the school is over six years.
There are currently some 60 nationalities represented in the student
body. Virtually every graduate goes on to university in Britain,
the USA, Italy or their home country.
The International School of Milan school year runs from early September
until late June. Educational visits are an essential feature of
the school's activities. Extra-curricular activities include sports,
theatre, music, Model United Nations and school magazine. An elected
Student Council represents the student body and arranges social
events throughout the year in the middle and high schools.
The main International School of Milan facilities are in the west
of the city with a Primary School Section in Monza. There is a full
complement of science laboratories, libraries, computer centres,
art and music studios, gymnasiums and sports pitches. School buses
provide a daily service in the city and many suburban regions.
Admission is based on previous school records and a personal interview
wherever possible. A good knowledge of English is usually required,
but special cases in the international community will be considered
on their merits.
