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 grade 3 to grade 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.

Grade 8's 'Galileo' residential trip inspires students

Grade 7's residential trip to Cilento

Last week, Grade 7 had the opportunity of visiting Cilento, for a three-day visit to the main attractions in this beautiful region. The students were accompanied by Mr. Scoppola and Ms. Walters

Grade 3 residential trip highlights

Grade 3 visited "La Tuscia Romana" this year for the residential trip. We had a fun-packed three days discovering the area around Lake Bolsena. We visited the National Park of Vulci and saw some ruins from the ancient Etruscans and learnt how to weave just like they did.


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 Visits

Rome International School has the full intention of extending the cultural and educational experience of its students by forging strong links with other IB schools worldwide. 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.
