Welcome to the International School of Milan (ISM).

ISM is proud of its position as the premier international IB school within the city. We are renowned for our high educational standards, caring learning environment, and world class facilities. We are a diverse community with over 50 nationalities and a student body that is proud of everything we do. We are the longest established international school in Milan, and our progressive educational thinking has served the international and Italian communities in Milan for over 60 years.

Our ethos of high achievement, coupled with diversity of opportunity, will enable your children to develop their confidence and be ready for the challenges of the future. The IB curriculum, which runs throughout the school, embraces internationalism and global citizenship, fitting the needs of students of all learning profiles. Our PYP, MYP and IB Diploma programmes thoroughly prepare our students for further study all around the world, including at the world's leading universities. Our academic results, including our students' final IBDP scores, are consistently above world averages.

Our dedicated international teaching community work with our students to support their well-being and guide them on their individual pathways. As a community, we embrace a growth mindset, ensuring that all students have the opportunity and motivation to aim high and achieve their dreams. Our students have agency over their learning, increasingly taking responsibility for their own personal development, and student leadership is very well developed. Our teachers embrace innovation and creativity, working with technology to enhance learning on a daily basis.

Facilities within our large and spacious campus are world class. Our students enjoy specialist music and drama facilities (including a theatre), a wide range of sport venues (including a swimming pool, gymnasium and football pitch), dedicated laboratories and libraries, alongside our well-furnished suite of classrooms. For students aged 14 or above, we also offer the option of joining our modern and vibrant boarding house for 42 students, where the care and attention provided by our staff team ensures a transformational educational and social experience for all.

As a school which caters for students from 2 to 18, our provision is very carefully differentiated to ensure that the needs of each student are well met. ISM will enable your child to thrive, whatever their profile and interests, through a unique holistic learning experience that is underpinned by the IB curriculum, our dedicated and innovative staff, our world-class facilities, and our very special international community.
