Established in 1947, the American Overseas School of Rome has a tradition of providing a rigorous and well-rounded American-International education to Pre-K through Grade 12 students in a supportive environment. We inspire a diverse student body to courageously meet the demands of a changing world through an engaging and creative curriculum. We are committed to educating each child to truly describe themselves as scholars, artists, and athletes.

AOSR is home to an international student body of around 600 students with one third from the United States, one third from Italy, and one third from 51 different countries. Our perfect size allows for every student to be noticed and nurtured while providing them access to a broad range of educational experiences. Our faculty is made up of 82 teachers from 11 countries. 77% of our teachers are native English speakers, and 82% hold advanced degrees.

AOSR is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and was the first international school to be awarded MSA's prestigious International Credential. We are members of RISA, CIS, and ECIS. AOSR is the only school in Rome to offer both the IB Diploma Programme and 18 AP courses. We believe that student choice is key to a great education.

Our students benefit from a 6 acre campus with the most complete facilities of any international school in Rome. This includes a historic villa, an indoor performing arts space, outdoor tennis and basketball courts, a soccer field, an indoor gymnasium, brand new Design/Maker's Space and Technology Labs, a spacious cafeteria, an outdoor edible garden and Roman amphitheater.

Our diverse selection of challenging coursework, the personal attention afforded to students through small classes, and dedication to athletics, technology, performing arts and other extra curricular activities provides a perfect platform for our students to thrive.
