About the Program: 

La Scuola is an independent school that serves children from age 3 to 8th grade. Our unique program unifies three key elements: the International Baccalaureate PYP framework, the Reggio Emilia pedagogy, and Italian language immersion. Together, this trio creates a powerful mix of academic depth, inquiry-based exploration, and a joyful environment that celebrates beauty and discovery. Our mission statement is: Inspire Brave Learners to Shape the Future. Our ultimate goal is to inspire a lifelong love of learning in our students, to inspire them to be problem-seekers and to understand how to work as part of a group to realize their full potential. Above all else, we believe learning should be joyful, and thus our mantra is: nothing without joy. We foster children’s imagination, curiosity, inquiry, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving to shape a lifelong passion for learning through the whole development of the child: physical, intellectual, emotional and social.
