Benvenuto dal preside

I am delighted that you are curious about the International School of Bologna (ISB). Since our inception in 2006, we have been serving a future-oriented community of local and international families in Northern Italy. Our campuses pulsate with positive energy, which translates into a sense of wonder and deep inquiry, broadening perspectives to help our students develop as individuals and make sense of the ever-changing world we live in.

Children learn by building relationships with their surrounding environment and our classrooms and outdoor spaces are designed to support this. The carefully planned and stimulating physical environment encourages both autonomy and collaboration between children. Children are given time and space to explore natural and open-ended materials that are fully chosen by the teachers to support the development of transdisciplinary inquiry-based projects. Emphasis is placed on students learning how to learn. Explicit learning outcomes and the learning process are made transparent to the students. Students and teachers work together to develop goals and strategies to improve learning. Learning often involves group activities focused on skills for leadership, social interaction, and problem-solving.



The primary years programme (PYP) is a transdisciplinary curriculum framework with an inquiry approach to conceptual learning and teaching. It is taught in over 100 countries of the world. The learner and the learning community are at the center of learning and teaching. Through the embodiment of the attributes of the international baccalaureate learner profile, the program strives to build cultural understanding and internationally-minded young people. Throughout an academic year, student inquiry is guided by conceptual ideas that are connected to six transdisciplinary themes of global significance. Bridges between subject disciplines are fostered and developed to build transferable knowledge, understanding, and skills.
