Ambrit International School provides an international education for students from diverse cultural backgrounds. We prepare students to become life-long learners and equip them with the academic and life skills to be responsible citizens in a global world. Children are encouraged to develop their own sense of identity, self-esteem and independence.
We provide a rigorous academic curriculum which enables each child to reach his/her greatest potential in a stimulating and caring environment. We encourage awareness and understanding of different cultures; inherent in this process is an appreciation of Italy, its language and its culture. Second language instruction is introduced at an early age, providing communication skills necessary for children in an international setting.
Ambrit is an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) school. We are currently implementing the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) and expect to be authorized at the start of the 18/19 school year. The IB programs provide opportunities for learners to construct meaning, principally through concept-driven inquiry. Students across the school have opportunities for cooperative and experimental learning which emphasize process oriented skills and the communicative importance of language.
Cooperation amongst parents, staff, students and the community is encouraged. Children are taught to care for and respect their natural environment and to develop an awareness of global issues. Students leave AMBRIT International School with an understanding of different cultures and a positive attitude towards the learning process.
The main campus is centrally located on a 10-acre hill overlooking the Tiber River. Transportation is available to most areas of Rome on request.
