The RISA Directory is published biennially by the Rome International
Schools RISA Association as a service to families seeking
suitable schools for their children in Rome. The data and descriptions
appearing in this Directory are furnished by the schools and endorsement
of any particular school is not made by this Association.
The Rome International Schools Association was founded in 1974 by a number
of headmasters and principals of schools in Rome desiring to share ideas
for keeping up to date with the trends of education in their home countries.
From those early meetings the Association grew.
The schools are of varying sizes and offer different combinations of levels
from pre-school through to secondary. The schools all share these common
they are "International" in the sense that
they offer a curriculum either typical of a country outside Italy or
one in which the culture and educational practice of two or more countries
they have students and sometimes teachers
drawn from a number of nations;
their sole or major language of instruction is English.
