Here at the International School of Ticino we place the student at the centre of all we do to facilitate them to become lifelong learners. We achieve this through our school culture, which is rooted in the IB Mission statement:

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The school opened as a Kindergarten in 2014 and as a feeder school to the International School Como in Italy, which had been in operation since 2002. The school was established to offer the local and international residents of Ticino an IB education. As of 2017 the International school of Ticino joined the Inspired education group, who educate students in  over 64 schools worldwide.

This grounding and combination with a leading educational group has laid the foundations for the special community of learning which we see today. The school currently  accommodates students from Kindergarten, 3 years old, to Grade 11, 16 years old.

From 2019 the school entered the most exciting phase of its development with the opening of our new purpose designed campus. The design and build of the new campus has drawn upon our foundations, the IB mission and the vision of the school:

Inspiring the extraordinary.

The opening of our new campus enabled the International school of Ticino to open Middle and High schools, and as of August 2019 we become a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). The school will become an authorized IB Continuum school MYP and DP school in the coming months offering education from 3-18 years old in class sizes of not more than 20 students.

The international School of Ticino is a special and exciting place to be and we look forward to welcoming you to our community.
