Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Established in 1947, the American Overseas School of Rome has a long tradition of providing a rigorous and well-rounded American international education to Pre-K through Grade 12 students.
The American Overseas School of Rome prepares tomorrow’s global leaders to meet the challenges of our changing world with courage and integrity.

Teaching approach of the school

AOSR is at the forefront in challenging students at every level while providing a support system and a feeling of continuity within the year-to-year transition.

Students begin their journey of learning with the innovative, world-renowned "Reggio Emilia" approach in the pre-school.

In the elementary school, AOSR nourishes curiosity and motivation to learn by exposing students to a wide range of subjects taught in a manner that challenges and supports the learning needs of each student.

The school's middle school program, in the delicate age of transition, fosters a greater sense of responsibility and independence.

In the high school, students are given the opportunity to dig deeper and expand their perception of the world through the rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) programs.

At every level, AOSR has always respected students with learning differences. For this reason, it was the first school in Italy to develop a resource department to provide a support system for students with learning disabilities in order to ensure their academic success.
