ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF TICINO


I would like to welcome you to the International School of Ticino on behalf of our wonderful team of staff, students and parents. The International School of Ticino is a special and exciting place to be. We are the first and only accredited International Baccalaureate (IB), Primary Years Programme (PYP) School in Ticino, Switzerland, with exciting plans for growth and development as an IB school.

Andrew Ackers, Head of School

WHO WE ARE


Here at the International School of Ticino we place the student at the centre of all we do to facilitate them to become lifelong learners. We achieve this through our school culture, which is rooted in the IB Mission statement, which states:

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The school opened as a kindergarten in 2014, as a feeder school to the International School Como in Italy, which had been in operation since 2002. The school was established to offer the local and international residents of Ticino an IB education. As of 2017 the International school of Ticino joined the education group Inspired, who educate over 4500 students in 150 schools worldwide.

This grounding and combination with a leading education group has laid the foundations for the special community of learning which we see today. The school now accommodates students from Kindergarten, 3 years old, to Grade 5. We accommodate them in a facilitated student centred learning environment, where we equip the child to develop in the international sector or in line with Ticino requirements.

Andrew Ackers, Head of School

NEW CAMPUS


From January 2019 the school will enter the most exciting phase of its development with the opening of a new purpose designed campus, 10 minutes from our current campus. The design and build of the new campus has drawn upon our foundations, the IB mission and the vision of the school; Shaping our Future Together.

The opening of our new campus will enable the International school of Ticino to open middle and high schools, and we will become a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP). This will enable your child to study at our school from the age of 3-18 in the coming years.

The international School of Ticino is a special and exciting place to be and we look forward to welcoming you to our community for a school visit, trail day and enrolment.
