How is the Italian program developed and the issue of Scholastic Parity dealt with?

WINS is registered as an international school on Italian soil, recognized by the Ministry of Education and inspired by the International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. Our choice is to be consistent with the nature of an international school while still supporting the study of Italian language and culture.
Therefore at WINS Italian classes are structured following the guidelines provided by the Italian Ministery for Education for regular Italian schools. The time allocated to Italian ensures full command of the written and spoken language, but also facilitates the study of Italian literature and culture.
The Italian curriculum is structured  to provide students with the necessary skills and competencies in case of need to transfer into an Italian public school. With respect to any choice to transfer into the Italian curriculum, upon request WINS will prepare students for the Terza Media exam.
This ensures Italian students have the opportunity to develop a global perspective while preserving local culture and content.
