La Scuola is a fantastic place! My kids are in 7th and 11th grade, for the second year since we moved in the City from Rome, where they attended the best public schools. La Scuola is absolutely comparable to them and I am happy to add that the Faculty is caring, enthusiastic and very attentive to each and every need of the kids. The bi-lingual education (+ French as a third language) is an incredible plus, and also for an American student it is a great privilege to read immortal authors in their own languages, English, Italian, French or Latin. The International Baccalaureate Diploma, also, is a great opportunity for kids to challenge themselves (and la Scuola is among the very few schools in NYC to offer it!) and an effective boost for the most important College Institutions around the world. Last but not least: at La Scuola, kids did not loose a single hour, due to the pandemic. They immediately set up a perfect environment for online schooling, and since the reopening in Sept 2020 they are at school in person.
