The curriculum is both challenging and rewarding. Our comprehensive Elementary curriculum is based on the Italian Ministerial one which is further enriched in content by an international perspective. This continues through the Middle school where the Cambridge curriculum is integrated, offering different world views and engendering international mindedness among the student body.
All lessons are taught in English, except for language classes that are taught by mother tongue teachers.
Students opting for the Italian Ministerial Exams take the course in Italian for one hour every day starting from third grade.
Strong academic skills are built by ensuring that a number of cross-curricular themes are fully integrated into our programmes.
Experiential learning is what we do best at Castelli because of our educational philosophy, the natural surroundings and the extensive facilities available.
A holistic approach is emphasized to develop students’ critical thinking and their ability to work collaboratively.
A sense of community service is promoted and an interest and passion for the environment is nurtured, along with food literacy.
ICT (Information Communication Technology)
Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)
Bringing learning to life is what we do best.
Children question and explore their subjects, and make connections between them.
Children become increasingly responsible and enjoy the diverse approaches to learning.
IGNITING AN ENJOYMENT FOR LEARNING LEADS TO SUCCESS IN LATER EDUCATION

The connections students make between their subjects, coupled with an enriching current affairs syllabus, discussion and debate, allow students to become more independent in their studies, perform above average in exams and go on to successful education and working careers.
