Founded in 2002, the International School of Como (IS Como) has grown to stand for excellence and has contributed to the expansion of international education in Northern Italy, as one of the almost 5,000 International Baccalaureate (IB) schools located worldwide. Today, IS Como welcomes over 340 students from 2 to 18 years old of 47 nationalities and an international staff of more than 60 qualified teachers and assistants.
IS Como is committed to providing children with the best educational experience possible. IS Como offers the IB (International Baccalaureate) Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes and aspires to create a community where learning is the central driving factor of a journey in which our students become ethical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, community-minded and individuals of action on the world stage.
Our state-of-the-art campus was designed and built specifically for our students and provides for every aspect of a vibrant, innovative and rigorous education. Over 10,000 square metres of internal and external spaces house our extremely large classrooms, a Robotics lab, two Art Studios, indoor gym and outdoor multipurpose sports facility, cafeteria and playgrounds. Recent additions to the facility include a Secondary School wing, 3 fully equipped Science Laboratories, a Drama Studio, and Primary and Secondary School Libraries, newly expanded and renovated.
With our efficient bus service we can cover a large number of the surrounding communities, and beyond, including: Como, Cantù/Carimate Lecco, Varese, and Lugano (Switzerland).
At ISC we are driven by our Mission Statement which is "IS Como is a student-centered community of internationally-minded learners. We offer a balanced and challenging curriculum, in a safe and nurturing environment, where we respect and value the Italian culture and our collective diversity. We empower all students to be active, reflective and responsible lifelong learners who can achieve their full potential and contribute to an ever-changing world."
