For over thirty years, Rome International School (RIS) has meant knowledge, opportunity and discovery both personal and intellectual.

Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment, in which children of all nationalities and faiths can explore and respect their own and each other's cultural and religious heritage. We aspire to equip our students with the skills needed to become life-long learners, so that every child is able to realise their unique gifts and talents and achieve their full potential.

We are the only school in Rome authorized to offer both the IB PYP and the IB DP programmes. We are also an accredited centre for the IGCSE, as validated by Cambridge Assessment for the first two years of High School, thereby ensuring the quality and consistency of a true international education and a passport to the world's best universities.

Our highly specialised and experienced international staff, who represent 19 different nations, are committed to our students' education and are there to support, inspire and motivate students. We are a non-denominational school and welcome students from all cultural backgrounds.

The school offers a broad variety of extra-curricular activities where students can develop and promote the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.

Students from Year 3 have the opportunity to study either Arabic or Chinese within the curriculum, taught by mother-tongue teachers. French, Chinese and Spanish language courses are also available as extra-curricular options in the Elementary School allowing students the possibility to continue these courses in the Middle and High School.

Creativity, physical health and well-being is important for all of our students. Middle and High School students have lessons in Art, Music, Drama and P.E. is taught in all years.

Information Communication Technology is embedded in everyday learning. Students across the school have access to banks of laptops and iPads and the school. A thriving Italian department is present in the school and the didactic activities of our Italian subject teachers are carefully coordinated across the school.

Our school building and campus are desgined to meet every learning and teaching need. Nestled in almost four hectares of natural parkland, our students benefit from ample outdoor play and learning spaces and state-of-the-art facilities. The school is part of the Eco Schools network and proudly flies the Eco School flag.

RIS is a proud member of the Globeducate network, one of the leading education networks in Europe. This brings many new opportunities for our community. RIS students and teachers benefit from exchange of best practices and a range of annual art, sports and inter-cultural events with other schools across the Globeducate network.

With a student body representing 50 different nationalities, Rome International School is the ideal context for a rewarding and progressive educational experience.
