WELCOME TO ISG
I believe that we should be striving to offer a truly international education, and that this is not simply a question of having different nationalities in the school. Each and every one of our students, and their different backgrounds, experiences and cultures should be recognised for who they are and for the unique qualities that each one will bring to the school. In other words, our students should not forget who they are, where they have lived, or where they come from in order to “fit in”. The importance of the individual should be enshrined within our curriculum, which in turn should be founded upon a belief in the importance of a holistic approach to education. It is my hope that the qualities, skills and conceptual understandings that the students learn through their experiences at the International School in Genoa will stand them in good stead and prepare them well for the rapidly changing world that they will enter when they leave the school.
