Un forte senso della Comunità

Una scuola con un forte senso della comunità non verrà mai dimenticata.

Alla Castelli si respira un’atmosfera familiare che infonde agli studenti ed ai genitori un vero senso di appartenenza.

La Castelli International Parents Association (CIPA) riveste un ruolo fondamentale nel promuovere iniziative che accrescono lo spirito di comunità, quali eventi sociali, giochi e raccolte fondi.

La esuberante ed attiva comunità degli ex studenti della Castelli si tiene in contatto da una parte all’altra del mondo e non perde occasione di passare alla scuola quando possibile. Facebook è il loro social media preferito e che ha reso possibile ai primi studenti della Castelli di 40 anni fa di tenersi in contatto con i loro compagni di classe e di dialogare con la sempre più numerosa comunità degli ex-studenti.

La Scuola ospita, quando possibile, professionisti esterni che contribuiscono in misura significativa ad arricchire le conoscenze degli studenti. Nel corso degli anni abbiamo ospitato esperti di astronomia, economia, ingegneria, medicina, nutrizione, musica e teatro.

La Castelli promuove scambi culturali e di collaborazioni con altre scuole ed istituzioni internazionali. I nostri studenti condividono idee e progetti con i loro coetanei di altre scuole nel mondo.

Ospitiamo scuole provenienti da altre parti del mondo ed abbiamo raccolto fondi per aiutare scuole e singoli studenti in Kenya, Malawi ed India.

La Castelli è socio fondatore della Rome International Schools Association (RISA), istituita per condividere problematiche di comune interesse, per promuovere scambi culturali, eventi formativi e conferenze per i docenti, nonchè organizzare giochi e competizioni interscolastiche.

My.Castelli è il portale riservato della scuola con cui la scuola e gli insegnanti aggiornano studenti e genitori sulle attività scolastiche, condividono lavori e risultati conseguiti dagli studenti, comunicano compiti a casa ed altri eventi di interesse per genitori e studenti.

Gli eventi sociali più importanti in calendario e che rinforzano lo spirito di comunità della scuola sono, il Winter Show, messa in scena da tutti gli studenti, Music Under the Stars, durante la quale gli studenti esibiscono i loro talenti musicali seguito da un rinfresco celebrativo organizzato dai genitori, Sports’ day, che vede la partecipazione degli studenti ad un intenso programma di giochi e competizioni sportive, seguito da un variegato buffet di cucine internazionali e da altre attività pomeridiane.

Teacher testimonials

Teaching here is an absolute pleasure. The idyllic environs and spacious grounds enable lessons to be conducted both indoor and outdoor. Creative teaching is very much encouraged and is greatly appreciated by parents and pupils. The enthusiasm for learning among pupils is inspiring for teachers and makes the job a very fulfilling one to do.

Mr. Murphy
Elementary Teacher

Teaching here is a pleasure. Students are genuinely curious, ask questions and show interest in what they were learning and how it connected to the real world.
There’s a positive culture around parent-teacher relationships which is a real help, particularly when problems arise.
The school also celebrates tradition, but also encourages innovation, and everyone benefits from that.

Middle School Teacher

Being challenged to learn a subject in one language, and explain it in a second is no mean feat. As a staff team we discuss our students’ progress regularly and share strategies so we don’t work in silos.
The programme means academic expectations are high but the smaller class sizes and the fact that Castelli’s students have been well trained in collaborative learning, means that nobody gets left behind.
Ms. Joanna Middle and Elementary Teacher

STUDENT/PARENT TESTIMONIALS

Expectations of students are very high and educational attainment excellent as a result. Students show particular strengths in oral activities, with the groups I observed speaking English with an understanding, clarity and sophistication well above their chronological age. Contributions in lessons are pertinent, well informed and thorough. Students are confident about speaking out and expressing and exchanging ideas.

Various experiences had given me reason to believe that I was a student with poor capacities, but somewhere deep in myself I knew it was not true. And that, am certain, was due to my year as your student. You helped me grow confident that year. You also created an atmosphere where we had the right to learn and grow in our own ways, where we, your students, were the actors of our own learning.

Jonna Louvrier Student

Looking back at their class photos over the years we remember just how well the school helped our children blossom. Leaving Castelli was a wrench, but they flew through the first year of high-school. Their self confidence was evident and the quickly settled in and demonstrate a level of maturity and intellect that my husband and I are so proud of.
Thank you Castelli, our 8 years with you stood them in excellent stead.

Student testimonials

CIS is one of my most cherished memories. It’s the best school you can wish for. Today I am studying computer engineering in Split, Croatia. CIS had a great influence on me and this is why I try to stay close to foreign languages and different cultures by being a tourist guide and volunteering in the Erasmus Student Network ok Split.
Anja Pivcevic Student

I will always have fond memories of Castelli, from the beautiful location, to the teachers, and the many trips we had the chance to take together, especially the time we went to Russia! The environment created a really close-knit group, and the years spent there were incredibly fun, but also prepared me immensely for the challenges I went on to face in the following years.
Luca Guidoni Student

The support and care of the teachers, staff and the beautiful setting made it such a unique and memorable experience. Our teachers ensured that we achieved our academic goals, but also fulfill our connection with the environment.
I have now moved on to become a Financial Consultant in an Investment bank in London, where I often meet up with classmates from CIS.
