International School of Siena
About International School of Siena
The school consists of small classes, one class per grade. Our IB programmes provide each student with opportunities to explore, inquire and develop confidence as well as equipping them with the skills, knowledge, and understanding necessary for the 21st century. Our school is based in a new purpose-built facility which includes well-designed classrooms, a spacious indoor Gymnasium, a Drama studio, Libraries and two Science labs with on-going developments of the external facilities.
We are an International Baccalaureate World School delivering all three programmes: Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. The school is one of several very successful Italian schools belonging to ISE (the International Schools of Europe) which in turn are part of Inspired, a worldwide network of premium schools. (www.inspirededu.co.uk), offering global best practice and professional development.
Our classrooms are exciting centres of collaborative learning and this extends to the philosophy and vision of relations between teachers and families. We believe that collaboration with families is of particular importance and our teachers interact comfortably and confidently with parents as well as being imaginative and flexible classroom practitioners. We expect high standards in teaching and learning with special awareness of language acquisition and literacy since the majority of students do not have English as their mother tongue.
