As a candidate IB-PYP school we aim to further develop the best IB inquiry-oriented, holistic, international school in Ticino in order to give our young students the opportunity to shape their future through an attractive learning environment that allows them to free their unique potential to the best.
The International School of Ticino is committed to providing an excellent international education. We value the potential, character and unique talent of every individual. Through an inquiry based approach our students become life-long learners and creative thinkers. Our innovative pedagogy based on the IB-PYP programme encourages our students to respect each other, to respect the environment, to communicate through active dialogue and to create the foundations of a collaborative society. We achieve this within a safe, nurturing environment with a strong sense of community at its heart.
The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
