International School of Bologna

Mission, Vision and Guiding Statements

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide stimulating learning experiences through the medium of the English language, in which children of internationally minded parents can develop the essential skills and knowledge required to make an active contribution as they take their place in our ever-evolving global society.

Vision Statement

The International School of Bologna will be a premier, three programme (PYP, MYP and DP), IB World School expanding one grade level each year until we graduate our first students in June 2017. ISB will be the school of choice for internationally-minded parents in the Emilia-Romagna region and a leader of IB schools in Italy.

Definition of Internationalism

The International School of Bologna chooses to define ‘Internationalism’ as having knowledge of and appreciation for your own culture and the culture of others. This is demonstrated through the IB Learner Profile.
