Governance and Senior Leadership Team

RIS is a proud member of NACE Schools. NACE owns and operates more than 51 international schools in Europe and beyond. It is one of the four largest private school groups in the world with an international presence and is the largest of its kind. It has more than 18,000 students enrolled at its schools in Europe from over 60 different countries, and is growing rapidly.

NACE Schools’ mission, to prepare each student to live successfully in a globalised world, is perfectly aligned with our student-centred approach.

In addition, an institutional agreement with the prestigious LUISS Guido Carli University means that our students can benefit from exclusive opportunities such as direct access to LUISS three-year and single-cycle courses; scholarships, university orientation and special activities and lessons at school, run by LUISS professors.
