From the age of 3 to the age of 11, students at the International School of Modena follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), a programme based on inquiry and which places the child at the centre of the learning process, enabling him/her to acquire all the concepts proposed. In an active and stimulating study environment, our students face up to significant themes and subjects. They are encouraged to act, applying what they study and learn, even outside the school in their daily activities.
From the age of 11 to 16, students at the International School of Modena follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP).
The Diploma Programme is an exacting programme of pre-university studies, designed for students aged 16 to 19. The International School of Modena has been offering this course since September 2015, drawing considerably on the experience of our sister school in Milan, which has offered the programme since 1987.
