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 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 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).
- 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.
The area is rich in sporting facilities, including a modern football pitch located just next to the school as well as rugby fields and an athletics track at the end of the road. The sports programme of the school can highly benefit from these facilities.
The location, right next to the Rondò delle Valli, makes it easy to reach both with public transport (ATB - Linea 7) and by car. A highly accessible parking place is also available right next to the school.
