Life at IS Como
IS Como aspires to create a community where learning is the central driving factor of a journey in which our students need to become ethical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, community-minded and individuals of action on the world stage.
WHO WE ARE
In 2002 a group of parents were looking to provide an international education for their children and the families in the Como area. With a great deal of research and determination, they decided to open the International School of Como and they invited educators, teachers and many other experts from the International School of Milan to share in the development of this great initiative. During its first 14 years, IS Como has grown to stand for excellence and has contributed to the expansion of international education in Northern Italy, as one of the over 4 500 IB schools located worldwide.
"These are schools that share a common philosophy: a commitment to high standards of education, values and programmes that challenge students to excel in their studies, and encourage both personal and academic achievement."
IS COMO IS A STUDENT-CENTERED COMMUNITY OF INTERNATIONALLY-MINDED LEARNERS.
Since 2006, IS Como has been accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO - www.ibo.org) for its Primary Years Programme (PYP). The school has well-established classes in the Early Years (Kindergarten, Transition and Grade 1 for children aged 2 to 5) and Elementary School (for children aged 6 to 11). In 2009 the International School of Como opened its Middle School and in 2014 received the accreditation for the Middle Years Programme (IB MYP). In 2018 it received its accreditation also for the IB Diploma (IBDP).
Lunches are provided by the school at an additional cost to parents. Lunches are prepared in-house by our dedicated chef, with fresh, organic and local products. We provide special lunches for those students who have special dietary needs, food allergies or cultural preferences: we kindly ask our parents to inform us immediately about any of the mentioned needs. Please note that school policy does not allow students to bring food from home.
