Founded in 2011, the International School of Bergamo (ISBergamo) is part of the Inspired Education Group, a leading global schools group educating over 45,000 students across a network of more than 64 schools. Committed to delivering high quality educational programmes, ISB strives to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world.
The school offers the IB (International Baccalaureate) Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes and, at present, caters for children born in 2005 or after. Every year, the school opens subsequent classes, with the aim of providing a full international curriculum up to Grade 13.
Joining ISBergamo offers a fantastic opportunity to enter a safe and nurturing environment, where the Italian culture is valued alongside the recognition and appreciation of a multicultural collective diversity. Technology plays an important role in the school and is embedded in the school curriculum through a blended approach where we feel it adds value to teaching and learning.
The school is located in a modern building in the Eastern part of Bergamo, in a green and quiet environment. The area is rich in sporting facilities, including a modern football pitch located just next to the school as well as rugby fields and an athletics track at the end of the road.
Students can benefit from a totally refurbished building with new, specialised facilities, including a dedicated Early Years area, an Art & Design Lab, a school library, and an outdoor multipurpose sports facility, as well as a cafeteria and playgrounds.
Recent additions to the facility include a Secondary School wing with a specialised Science Laboratory, a Music, Drama & Dance studio, an Innovation Lab, and a newly expanded indoor gym.
Thanks to an efficient bus service, the school covers the city of Bergamo as well as a large number of the surrounding communities.
