Core International School in Rome teaches a combination of English and Italian curriculums for pupils from nursery through primary school.
Core International School was founded in 1983 in Rome teaching a curriculum based on the English national curriculum for pupils from nursery through to the end of primary school.
All lessons are conducted in English. Italian language lessons begin at the age of 5, and for the first year is taught orally. By year 2 the children start to follow the Italian curriculum using the appropriate text books, gaining a good knowledge of reading and grammar, and setting them up for further education in either Italian or English, or both. In year 6 children also have one hour a week of mathematics in Italian to familiarise them with phraseology and methodology.
The school policy is to keep classes small, about 16 children in each class, so that each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to reach his or her full potential.
The school requires a registration fee of €350,00. School fees range between €8,700 to €10,600. For a full overview of fees for the 2021-22 academic year, click here.
