Middle School


RIS Rome is an accredited Cambridge International School and examination centre. Cambridge Checkpoint and International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams are offered. 

The Middle School programme, which starts with Year 7 at Rome International School, is a stimulating and varied curriculum that seeks to develop and enrich the learning skills formed in the Primary Programme. It draws learning material from a wide range of global contexts and we use the excellent range of learning resources available for Cambridge Secondary Education. Students in the Middle School follow a diverse and inclusive curriculum. Emphasis is placed on teamwork, collaboration and academic excellence.

Cambridge Checkpoint

The school introduced Cambridge Checkpoint for students in Year 9, a diagnostic tool designed to assess learners at the end of the Middle Years.

Cambridge Checkpoint is an international assessment for the Middle Years. Our results are based on comparative data with other international schools and those in the UK.

Results show that every year, our students make better progress than expected in English, Maths and Science, which are the three subjects tested.
