More than a Classroom

Being a part of the International Baccalaureate community has heightened our interest in developing partnerships to enrich the curriculum and provide motivating student learning experiences.

Residential Trips

From Year 3 to Year 12, carefully chose residential trips, either in Italy or to international locations, are offered annually. The itinerary for all trips is carefully chosen to ensure an educational but enjoyable experience for the students and the security of students is always uppermost in our minds.

Year 3 residential trip highlights - La Tuscia Romana

Year 3 went on their residential trip to 'La Tuscia Romana' last week. They had a fantastic time! For many children this was the first time away from their parents, however the children all became independent and adventurous during their three days away.

Highlights from Year 9's residential trip to Venice-Trieste

On Monday 18th March, the two Year 9 classes travelled to Venice and Trieste for their week-long residential trip. This itinerary of this trip was carefully chosen and was connected to the History and Geography programmes. In particular, this experience helped the students extend their knowledge about Italy's role during the First and Second World Wars.

Rome International School to host NACE Academic Olympics

As part of the NACE group of schools, Rome International School, along with our sister school, Southlands International School, will be hosting an event for Year 9 and Year 10 students called the "Academic Olympics". This will involve events in both schools as well as a number of cultural activities.


Excursions and visits to places of interest, such as exhibitions and museums, are carefully planned and extend the knowledge, skills and understanding gained in the classroom. These activities are one way of connecting with the local community, helping students to see the relation between what is being learned in the classroom and real-life.

Model United Nations

Exchange trips between our High School students and those of our ‘partner schools’ will be organised where possible by teachers at appropriate times of the year.
