JUMP INTO A UNIQUE FRENCH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL!

THE ENGLISH SECTION - INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB)

ISD Rome is accredited with the International Baccalaureate Organization and opens an English-speaking International Section (GRADE 10) from September 2022 and the Diploma Program for 2023-2024. Courses mainly taught in English make it possible to prepare for the IB diploma, which is recognized worldwide. The IB course is prepared from the 2nd class in Grade 10 and trains our students to acquire the skills that will make them responsible citizens. Rigorous training that opens the doors to the best universities in the world.

THE BENEFITS OF THE ENGLISH INTERNATIONAL SECTION – IB

The language of the International Section is English and it is in this language that the majority of courses are delivered, however you can also study other languages at a very advanced level.

Small classes allow students to exchange and communicate very easily with each other but also with their teachers.

A wide choice of subjects associated with projects of solidarity, commitment and leadership make it possible to build and strengthen a recognized and sought-after academic profile.

Interactive classes: IB students are actors in their learning and deploy with their teachers a personalized strategy adapted to the challenges they set themselves.

The development of critical thinking via the Theory of Knowledge (ToK), the acquisition of skills and research (Extended Essay) lead the student to effectively master the tools that will lead him to success in the Diploma Program exam.

A CAS coordinator (Creativity, Activity, Service) works with Diploma Program students as they take initiative to organize their CAS project, reflect on their progress and achieve their goals. An IB coordinator organizes, plans and supports the work of students and teachers to carry out a fulfilling orientation project.

THE IB DIPLOMA PROGRAM CURRICULUM

IB students, guided by their DP coordinator and an academic coach, must choose a subject from each of the first 5 groups, in order to broaden their knowledge and understanding in the following disciplines: language and literature, individuals and societies, sciences and math. Students must also choose either an arts subject from the Arts group or a second subject selected from the other subject groups. Diploma Program subjects can be taken at Standard Level (NM) or Higher Level (NS).

LE TRONC COMMUN IB

The Common Curriculum is designed to provide students with a broader educational experience and to encourage them to apply their knowledge and skills. It includes 3 components:
