The school

The ISR will open in August 2018. Its mission is to provide stimulating learning experiences through the medium of the English language. It will be a school where 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.

It will be the goal of ISR to prepare students for their future in a global community and to graduate lifelong learners who are ethical, competent, culturally aware and self-reliant. We will expect our graduates to possess sufficient skills to enrich their lives and the lives of others.

ISR is situated in the historical center of Rimini. The school will begin with an Early Years department and grade 1. ISR will apply to become an IB World School offering the PYP. It will also be accredited by the Council of International Schools.

ISR will be linked with the International School of Bologna which itself enjoys a strong and growing reputation for its academic programme and is an active member of the Association of IB schools in Italy.
