The International School of Bergamo is committed to high standards in learning and the promotion of international values which enable us to become active citizens in building a world without frontiers.

The International School of Bergamo

The International School of Bergamo was opened with a vision of providing an international education in the Bergamo area.
The development of this new venture was shared with educationalists and others experts from the International School of Milan.
Committed to delivering high quality educational programmes, ISB strives to develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world. At present, ISBergamo caters for children born in 2005 or after. Every year, the school opens subsequent classes, with the aim of providing a full international curriculum up to Grade 13.

The International School of Milan

The International School of Bergamo stems from a partnership with the International School of Europe which, as well as running the International Schools of Milan, Monza, Modena and Siena, has also been a key promoter of the International Schools of Bologna, Brescia, Como, Palermo and Rome.
Founded in 1958, the International School of Milan is the largest international school in Italy, and one of the few to offer the complete cycle of International Baccalaureate® programmes for learners from 3 to 18 years of age. ISM graduates have access to universities worldwide in a number of faculties (management, economics, engineering, law, scientific subject, medicine, among others).

Core Values
Our Mission
  • To experience an international education in English, from the first years of school, learning alongside classmates from all over the world.
  • To become part of an open, multicultural, stimulating and active community ready to succeed in an increasingly complex world.
  • To access the highest standards in learning guaranteed by programmes that are well established and that have a track record of excellent results.


Alongside learning in English, the modern and innovative programmes adopted by ISBergamo offer a challenging and stimulating curriculum designed to generate an enthusiasm for learning and value it as a life-long process.

Our Team
All of our teachers are carefully selected from highly qualified candidates, many of whom have come to us from the international school circuit where they have lived and worked in a variety of foreign cultures. Some have stayed with us since the beginning, giving us an overall stability, whereas our new teachers share their recent studies and experiences.

Teachers work together on lesson planning in order to ensure that curriculum objectives are met taking into account the needs of each individual student with the aim of constructing a long-term educational path.

All teachers are selected through a collaboration with the International School of Europe which owns a teacher selection and training centre in London. Teachers are chosen on the strength of their academic and professional qualifications.
All teaching staff are fully trained in the IBO® PYP programme.


The Head of Education and Early Years Coordinator provide a constant monitoring on the educational programme, help with the implementation of the IB PYP and offer a day-to-day support for all teachers at the International School of Bergamo.
Specialist teachers are brought in for Italian, Music, Art and Italian as a second language. EAL specialists assist class teachers with the integration of non-English speakers into the curriculum, as well as providing intensive language tuition.
