Founded in 1958, the International School of Milan is the longest established International School here in the city. Although we are the longest established international school here in the city, at our school you will find the strongest academic standards supported by the most progressive educational thinking that has served the international and Italian communities in Milan for over 60 years. We are confident that our ethos, focused on achievement and underpinned by opportunity for all, will enable your children to develop their confidence and be ready to embrace the challenges of the future.
The IB curriculum (which runs throughout all years) is a truly international one and is a perfect fit for the needs of all our students. Our PYP, MYP and IB Diploma programmes thoroughly prepare our students for further study all around the world, including at some of the world’s leading universities. Our results are significantly above world averages with achievement in the Diploma for example at a particularly high level.
Our international, dedicated and skilled teaching body work well with our students in order to make them the success we know they can be. Their desire to challenge young minds is shaped by a growth mindset, ensuring that the focus is on every student achieving beyond what a school might ‘normally expect’. In short, we believe your son or daughter can achieve more and be happier with us here at IS Milan.
We opened our brand new boarding house in September 2018 and can accommodate up to approximately 50 students. With the care and attention given by our staff, boarding at IS Milan provides a truly transformative international educational experience for 14 to 18-year-olds.
The International School of Milan is proud of its position in the city as the premier international IB school in terms of its curriculum and outlook and is renowned for its high educational standards and caring learning environment. We are also an international community with over 50 nationalities and a student body that is proud to belong to our school community and enthusiastic about the learning they take part in. We are certain that you will see the International School of Milan as a place where learning is genuinely celebrated and where each of our students are valued and challenged to succeed from the age of 2 up to 18.
