St. Francis International School Rome is located in the north of Rome. Our school is a special place, and we are energized by the opportunity of partnering with parents to educate our children. Four beliefs guide our work:
- We believe in the intellectual, emotional, physical, creative, social, and developmental needs and unique abilities of each child.
- We believe in helping each child develop self-confidence, self-respect, and self-reliance as essential ingredients for learning.
- We believe in developing students’ respect and responsibility for their natural, social, and educational environment.
- We believe students who have a meaningful connection to diverse nationalities will help create a world in which cooperation, tolerance and kindness prevail.
Our teaching staff are truly international, coming from every continent (besides Antarctica!). They possess high academic standards and a wealth of experience, and we are fortunate to have very low staff turnover. Staff members are either English mother-tongue or fully bilingual.
Our small size (around 200 students) allows us to keep close and supportive relationships with the children and their families throughout their educational journey with us.
We strive to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and respected.
