Bergamo Italy
International School of Bergamo

Joining ISBergamo offers a fantastic opportunity to enter a safe and nurturing environment, where the Italian culture is valued alongside the recognition and appreciation of multicultural collective diversity. Technology plays an important role in the school and is embedded in the school curriculum through a blended approach where we feel it adds value to teaching and learning. The school is located in a modern building in the Eastern part of Bergamo, in a green and quiet environment. The area is rich in sporting facilities, including a modern football pitch located just next to the school as well as rugby fields and an athletics track at the end of the road. Students can benefit from a totally refurbished building with new, specialised facilities including a dedicated Early Years area, an Art & Design Lab, a school library, an IT lab, and an outdoor multipurpose sports facility, as well as a cafeteria and playgrounds. Recent additions to the facility include a Secondary School wing with a specialised Science Laboratory, a Music & Dance studio, and a newly expanded indoor gym. Thanks to an efficient bus service, the school covers the city of Bergamo as well as a large number of the surrounding communities.
