ISC-Como-About-Us-Gavin-Williams copy

Welcome to the International School of Como!  We are a student-centred community of internationally-minded educators, parents and children who work collaboratively to develop inquiring, motivated, knowledgeable and caring young people.

We place great value upon our educational model that is based on social responsibility and the emotional, social and intellectual development of the children in our care.

As an IB World School, we aim to develop young people that will make a positive difference to the world through intercultural understanding and respect.  We do this by empowering our students to be active, reflective and responsible life-long learners.

We offer the continuum of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) in addition to a synergy with the Italian Programmi Ministeriali.  These programmes give our students the inspiration to develop a love of learning and ensure that they have the necessary skills to cope with the demands of an uncertain future in an ever-changing world. 

Our curriculum is delivered by a highly professional, experienced and caring staff who have consistently high expectations for their students.  The relationships between staff and students are central to our community values, and to the success of our institution.  We place great value on developing and nurturing these relationships so that our students can benefit from a safe and welcoming learning environment where they can take risks, share knowledge and explore with confidence.

If you have the pleasure of visiting ISC, you will be able to see this exciting and nurturing learning environment first-hand.  ISC is a place where students feel a sense of belonging and where they know they are valued as an individual.

I welcome you to arrange a visit so that your family can experience the special atmosphere of our welcoming school community.

Warm Regards,
Gavin Williams
