Head of School’s Welcome

Located in the province of Brescia, our non-denominational international school was established in 2009. Since then we have built a strong academic programme; achieving IB world school authorisation for the Primary Years Programme in 2012 and the Middle Years Programme in 2017. In September 2018 we will be a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme; working towards our goal of becoming an IB Continuum school.

Our students and teachers come from many different countries and this can be perceived in the international climate in our school. We foster the heritage of our host country, Italy, and balance this with a strong global outlook across our curriculum. Our teachers are dedicated, our students are motivated to learn and we have a real commitment from our school community to the teaching and learning and to enhancing the life of the school.

We look forward to welcoming new students from all cultures and backgrounds into our school community and invite you to visit our school to discover exactly what makes us special and how we achieve positive satisfaction feedback from our families.

Mrs Penny Garner, Head of School

Mission

The International School Brescia is dedicated to providing students with a culturally diverse, innovative international education. Our whole-student methodology encourages and empowers students to reach their full potential in order to become active, open-minded, life-long learners and citizens for the modern world. At International School Brescia, we recognise that our students are global citizens-in-the-making, valued and vital assets to their families, the local community, and the greater world. Within a tolerant, multicultural environment, the intellectual, emotional, ethical and physical development of our learners is fostered. As children ‘learn how to learn’, they accrue the necessary habits of mind, critical thinking skills and social abilities to become collaborative contributors to their own learning. The changing world requires a flexible, adaptable, interconnected outlook and a compassionate nature. At International School Brescia, we ensure the promotion of an international mind-set within a supportive and encouraging academically challenging environment.
