Italian Language Section
From Grade 2, IST introduces a bilingual structure for students who are required to comply with the Ticino Canton requirements (students with 6 years of residency in Ticino). This fosters the students' ethical, creative, social and intellectual qualities, in harmony with the guidelines of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organization and the principles established in the Piano di studio della scuola dell'obbligo ticinese approved by the Ticino Canton and based on the Accordo Intercantonale HarmoS.
Our Bilingual Programme focuses on the development of the whole child, addressing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. While at the same time, it provides our children with an integrated foundation in the following disciplines: mathematics, social studies, language, music, visual arts, science, personal and social education, and physical education.
