The International School of Siena, opened in 2010, is a school for children aged 3 to 18 years old and the only IB continuum school in Tuscany, fully authorised for the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).

Our school is a member of Inspired education group, 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.

Learning at IS Siena is exciting and engaging, as students strive for excellence in a climate that is caring and responsive to individual needs and goals. Our global vision is coordinated by an outstanding team of educational leaders and implemented by our highly skilled and dedicated professional staff.

In January 2019, we relocated to a stunning new school building where we enjoy spacious classrooms, light, modern teaching spaces and a spacious gym, drama/dance studio, a library, music and art rooms and science laboratories fitted with equipment of the highest standards. Our Early Years spaces are also specially designed to complement the Reggio Inspired teaching approach.

Learning at the International School of Siena is an international experience with students from over 20 nationalities. It leads to a well-informed perception of the world and an education that merges understanding of our global context with the development of skills and attitudes that young people require to participate fully in the world of tomorrow, both as national and global citizens.

We deeply appreciate the diversity in our school community and aim to celebrate this diversity as well as supporting each student to appreciate and embrace Italian culture and become fully bilingual in English and Italian. Our location in beautiful Tuscany provides us with access to this culture and to a variety of educational resources - we strive to incorporate our local community into the experience of the students, building connections between the classroom and the real world.

IS Siena's school community is welcoming to parents, students, and staff alike, as they work together to provide a stimulating and well-rounded education that engages its students and creates outstanding graduates.
