Established in 1985, St. Francis International School offers a core education in English from Preschool (3 years old) to Grade 8 (14 years old), which follows the rigorous US programme, with an optional Italian state programme, leading to completion of Scuola Media exams.
St. Francis International School is a small but thriving community of both international and local families. We welcome students from different countries, cultures and religions to enrich our school community.
Our mission is to provide a challenging and inspiring curriculum to each of our children in a safe, respectful and nurturing environment.
Four beliefs guide our work:
– We believe in the intellectual, emotional, physical, creative, social, and developmental needs and unique abilities of each child.
– We believe in helping each child develop self-confidence, self-respect, and self-reliance as essential ingredients for learning.
– We believe in developing students’ respect and responsibility for their natural, social, and educational environment.
– We believe students who have a meaningful connection to diverse nationalities will help create a world in which cooperation, tolerance and kindness prevail.
Our first-class, international teaching staff, either English mother-tongue or fully bilingual English/Italian, has high academic standards and a wealth of experience.
Our small size (less than 200 students) allows us to keep close and supportive relationships with the children and their families throughout their educational journey with us.
Compared with other International schools in Rome, St. Francis International School represents excellent value for money for the programme delivered.
