Our school is a private school which is accredited by the Italian Ministry of Universities and Research and by the Accrediting Commission for Schools and Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges located in California. It is our goal to provide our students with the best opportunities and programs to achieve excellence in education.
We have four sections: Early Years (3-5 years of age), Junior (1st – 5th grade), Middle School (6th – 8th grades) and High School (9th-13th grades). Our curriculum follows the Italian standards, which is augmented with courses to create a challenging international program for all our students. Courses are taught in English, Italian studies are taught in Italian. Our students come from all over the world and we celebrate all the different cultures and traditions of our students. Many students are here in Italy because their parents are attached to the U.S Naval Support Activity and their co-located commands or with NATO, which is located 5 minutes from our school.
The International School of Lago Patria is located off the main road in Lago Patria. Situated in a quiet, green, residential area the school has bright, colorful classrooms which are excellently organized. Each classroom in the Junior, Middle and High School is furnished with a new interactive whiteboard and specialized software. There is also an interactive whiteboard in the Early Years Section of the school. The school has a swimming pool, gym, sports field, ample gardens and playground areas for the children. There is parking available for parents.
For parents stationed with JFC NATO we are located just around the corner from the main base. Parents stationed with JFC have the possibility of walking or riding a bike to work from our location.
We invite parents to come in and speak with our staff and tour the school to see what a wonderful environment we have for children of all ages. Please see the contact page to get in touch with the school.
