New approach

ICS Milan is the first school dedicated to students from 0 – 18 Years that offers an international curriculum enhanced by didactics that develop the fundamentals of design, in terms of methodology and collaborative learning. It’s a school of innovation that helps children grow into citizens of the world. 

 

The school embraces the values inherent in Italian heritage, culture and tradition whilst promoting international learning, cultural diversity, dialogue and respect for difference. ICS Milan fosters a sense of discovery and cultural understanding via teaching methods that are designed to develop observational and research skills, critical thinking and independent learning.
 

International School with Italian Roots

As Scuola Paritaria (an officially recognised school), our school also adopts the national recommendations for the curriculum issued by MIUR (the Ministry of Education). The Italian language and history programmes are designed for mother-tongue Italian speakers. A specific programme for Italian as an additional language learners is available for children of other nationalities.

ICS Values

ICS Milan teaches creativity, responsibility, respect, diversity, compassion and shared values. Students are invited to develop a sound knowledge base and to reflect on and reassess their surroundings from a variety of perspectives.

Our system fosters a balanced development of different personalities. It combines the importance of rules with a sense of expressive creativity, challenge and imagination, and it also provides the necessary tools for becoming "masters" of our own abilities.

Our teaching approach stimulates each developmental and learning phase of every child by placing respect for others and for ourselves at its centre.
