Rome International School (RIS) offers an unparalleled inclusive international education that prepares students to solve problems that have not yet been imagined and to work in jobs that may not yet exist.
We continue to be the only school in Rome authorised to offer both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and IB Diploma Programme. The school is an accredited centre for the Cambridge IGCSE thereby ensuring the quality and consistency of a true international education.
Highly qualified, caring and experienced staff motivate and inspire students to achieve their potential, both academically and personally.
We teach students to think for themselves and to understand the significance of what they are learning in global and local contexts. Our inquiry-based educational approach places students at the centre of the learning process and encourages them to be active participants in their education.
Students who complete the rewarding educational journey at RIS progress to attend universities of their choice worldwide. They will have established a personal set of values that will lay the foundation for international mindedness and critical thinking to develop and flourish.
From the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award to a sustainability education partnership with WWF and Eco Schools, our community of learners can participate in enriching co-curricular and extracurricular activities that take learning beyond the classroom and make real-life connections.
The school’s state-of-the-art building has been purpose-built to meet every learning and teaching requirement. Nestled in almost four hectares of natural parkland in north-west Rome, close to the city centre, our campus offers students plenty of opportunities to play, discover and experiment.
Joining RIS means joining an extended international community.
We are a member of the Globeducate ICS family of schools, united by a vision to prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world.
With a student intake of over 50 different nationalities, Rome International School is the ideal context for a rewarding and progressive educational experience.
RIS is an International Baccalaureate World School – the only school in Rome authorised to offer both the IB Primary Years Programme for ages 3 to 11 and the IB Diploma Programme for ages 16 to 18. Our rich middle school (ages 12 to 14) curriculum leading to the Cambridge IGCSE (ages 14 to 16), provides the consistency of a true international education.
As educators we know that the life of the school has to go well beyond the school day. Our students can practise a sport, a musical activity, augment their studies, learn a language or simply do something that is fun and educational. This programme reaches out to all ages and interests, including mums and dads. We believe it is full of opportunities and it embraces inclusivity, diversity and develops the qualities of the IB Learner Profile.
