IB World Schools in Italy

Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Italy? Here you can find a list of Italian schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.

The schools featured below offer at least one of the IB's four programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP). You can use the search filter below to look for schools that offer one programme in particular.

The birthplace of European Renaissance, Italy has long been a magnet for writers, artists and intellectuals from around the world. Today, it boasts a large and thriving international education sector, with most major towns and cities having an international school. 

Larger clusters are found in Rome, Milan, Florence, Genoa and Naples. Schools offering the curriculums of Britain, America, France and the International Baccalaureate Office predominate, while Swiss, German and Canadian education and the Montessori method are also offered and some schools have a Catholic foundation. 

There are 36 IB World Schools in Italy, of which 31 teach in English and five offer bilingual instruction in Italian and English. Among these, 25 are authorised to offer the IB Diploma and five teach three IB programmes.

Virtually all schools are coeducational and the vast majority teach day pupils, with many offering through-train education from pre-school to age 18. St George’s British International School in Rome, which was founded in 1958, follows the English national curriculum and offers GCSEs, IGCSEs and the IB Diploma.

There are several boarding schools, including St Stephen’s School in Rome, a high school offering both the American high school diploma and the IB Diploma.

Education is compulsory from age six to 16. State schools teach in Italian and are free to all children including foreign nationals. They are divided into primary, lower secondary and upper secondary stages, lasting five years, three years and five years respectively. 

School enrolment is close to 100 per cent. Study at the academic liceo leads to the maturita exam for university entrance. Italy has 63 public universities, including Europe’s oldest one, the University of Bologna. 

IB World Schools are part of a thriving international school sector in Italy. For information on all international schools, you can visit: www.internationalschoolsearch.com
