Lower School

First grade marks a transition to a more structured academic curriculum, bolstered by the close relationships that students develop with their teachers as they grow in confidence as learners and members of the La Scuola d’Italia community.

“I love the school. My son attended from Pre K until 12th grade and he had a wonderful experience. Top notch teachers, great community, incredible bilingual program, IB Diploma, and great community.”


Interdisciplinary Elementary Program

Our bilingual elementary program is well-rounded and interdisciplinary, connecting literature, history, social studies, geography, and current events. Physical education, art, theater, music, library, French, and technology classes round out our comprehensive curriculum, exposing students to a variety of physical and cognitive experiences and giving them hands-on opportunities to explore their own interests and talents.

The Perfect Environment to Learn in Both Languages

Elementary students are encouraged to become fluent and expressive, communicating effectively in both English and Italian. Elementary applicants do not need to be Italian or to speak the language to apply and gain acceptance; we will conduct a language assessment during the admission process to ensure that students are ready to join us. Small classes and supplemental language instruction ensure students have the individualized attention and guidance needed to learn in both languages.
