Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Core International School in Rome was founded in 1983 and is staffed by qualified, experienced British teachers.
The school began in a small way and although it has grown over the last thirty years it has been able to maintain the original familiar atmosphere where children of many nationalities, cultures and religious backgrounds, learn to live and work together in harmony.

The school policy is to keep classes small, about 16 children in each class, so that each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to reach his or her full potential.
All lessons are conducted in English and emphasis is placed on children acquiring a sound understanding of the three basic skills, whilst learning in a creative environment.
