The International School of Como (ISC), founded in 2002 has grown into a school that stands for excellence and has contributed to the expansion of international education in Northern Italy. Today, ISC welcomes over 400 students from 2 to 18 years old of 47 nationalities and an international staff of more than 60 qualified teachers and assistants.
Our school is part of Inspired Education, the leading global premium group of schools that offer excellence in education to over 75,000 students worldwide. From exchange programmes to exclusive camps, to leadership conferences and shared learning experiences, Inspired offers a range of enriching global opportunities which give students a chance to travel, meet peers from other countries and become a part of a vibrant international community.
ISC is committed to providing children with the best educational experience possible. We offer the IB (International Baccalaureate) Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes and aspire to create an environment where students become ethical thinkers, creative problem-solvers, community-minded and individuals of global action.
Our state-of-the-art campus was designed and built to optimise our students' education. Over 10,000 square metres of internal and external spaces house our large classrooms, a robotics lab, two art studios, and indoor gym and outdoor multipurpose sports facility, cafeteria, and playgrounds. The most recent additions to the facility include a fully renovated secondary school wing, 3 fully equipped science laboratories, a drama studio, and primary and secondary school libraries.
Thanks to our efficient bus service, we welcome students from a considerable number of the surrounding communities - including Como, Cantù/Carimate, Lecco, Varese, and Lugano (Switzerland).
At ISC we are driven by our mission statement: "International School of Como is a student-centred community of internationally minded learners. We offer a balanced and challenging curriculum, in a safe and nurturing environment, where we respect and value the Italian culture and our collective diversity. We empower all students to be active, reflective and responsible lifelong learners who can achieve their full potential and contribute to an ever-changing world."
