Middle School

Middle School

The Middle School is organised in a three-year educational cycle and offers significant growth opportunities to young people aged between 11 and 14 years with a stimulating curriculum in line with today's educational standards and demands.

Students are encouraged to develop the skills and competencies required for their future academic careers in order to engage with an increasingly global society. The school actively promotes the individual progress of all of our students, which enables each pupil to reach their full potential in a well-structured and interactive environment.

Aims and objectives
As in all EISP school cycles, knowledge of the subjects is combined with students’ personal development in order to stimulate their curiosity and learning and guide them for the rest of their professional and adult lives.

The Middle School aims to accommodate students within an educational context that interacts with the International Community and gives an excellent level of preparation, through the use of a variety of learning strategies and up-to-date teaching resources.

We offer our young learners a theoretical and practical framework which increases abilities, concepts, knowledge and good study methods essential for the transition from Elementary to High School.

The Middle School programme is a flexible and versatile combination of international educational principles and the curriculum in use in the Italian State School system, sponsored by the Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca (MIUR).

This particular mix of educational approaches allows our teachers to express their professionalism on a wider teaching scale, enabling them to meet students’ discrete needs and personal learning styles.

The language of instruction is English, except for the following subjects: modern foreign languages (MFL), technical drawing and mathematics; for the latter there is also the option to attend the course in English.

The linguistic and literary areas of the curriculum have been extended with the goal to inspire our students to develop their proficiency within the four basic language areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in English and Italian. This educational experience is further augmented through the introduction of a third European language with students selecting from either French, Spanish or German.
