12 Mar International School of Bologna
The International School of Bologna (ISB) opened in September 2004 to provide an international education for children in Bologna and outlying areas. It provides a learning environment with a clear mission to meet the needs of the children of internationally minded parents through the medium of the English language. The school has, at present, a roll of over two hundred and caters for children in Early Years, Elementary School and Middle School and expanded into High School in the 2013-14 school year. In 2009, the school achieved the status of being an IB World School authorised to offer the Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) and in 2013 the school also became a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme. The school is staffed by qualified and experienced teachers, including teachers in the specialist areas of Art, Music and Physical Education. The Early Years classes and Grade 1 teacher are assisted by Support Teachers.
