A Complete Course of Study from Kindergarten through Middle School

We currently offer programs for students from 5 years old through middle school. Students are divided in groups of 6-12 and attend class 5 days a week. Personalised options and online programs are also available. Because of our decision to offer small class sizes, our students and staff enjoy a calm and serene atmosphere in which we’re able to offer much more than traditional subject-matter study.

At our school, the students are the ones who ask their parents if they can come to school! We knew our school would be innovative and interesting for the students, but we didn’t anticipate such a positive, enthusiastic response from our students! Instead of the traditional stomachache or anxiety about a test, our students embrace the challenge that they enjoy here at school.

How have we achieved this?

The response is quite simple! Our students are part of a group in which their opinions are respected both by all staff and by each other. The teachers act as a guide during their discovery process, but the students themselves are responsible for their own learning and achievement. Our students don’t merely passively receive and tick items from a syllabus; instead, they discover, with the help of the teachers, each topic and then, by way of critical thinking and research strategies, they build on the traditional items on the syllabi.

What are our parents and students saying about our school?

“The Bilingual School at Centro Studi Mugello is the best school in the area! The personnel uses the most updated teaching methods and they have the right personalities in order to get the students interested in their school experience. The kids learn much more than they do at the state school due to the use of teaching strategies that really work. […]”
