WHEN I HEAR I FORGET.
WHEN I SEE I REMEMBER.
WHEN I DO I UNDERSTAND.
Castelli International School (CIS) is a private, independent day elementary and middle school, founded in 1977 situated a few kilometers south of Rome. It offers a challenging and successful programme which integrates our Elementary, the Cambridge Secondary 1 and 2 curricula, with the Italian Ministerial one. English is the primary language of the school. Castelli’s highly qualified longstanding faculty is committed to delivering a holistic education and to developing inquisitive, caring, ethically minded individuals who will make a positive impact towards creating a sustainable global society.
Students, coming from all over the world, are prepared for international and national high schools and go on to study at universities to then pursue successful careers.
Small classes surrounded by nature and the hands-on approach hold true to the Chinese proverb: “When I hear, I forget. When I see, I remember. When I do, I understand.”
Earth to Table
A GREEN ECO-SCHOOL
FOR A SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION
Our campus, situated in the beautiful countryside overlooking Rome, not only provides our students with a relaxing, stimulating and healthy environment in which to study, but also helps the students to love and respect nature. Students participate in the annual grape and olive harvests and in the year round Earth to Table project. These hands-on and sensory based activities helps them to establish a caring relationship with the environment and appreciate how dedicated work produces positive results. Students also actively participate in reducing, reusing and recycling resources and are involved in the School’s extensive eco-projects.
