Middle School

(Age 11-14)

At Benedetto XV Middle School, we have developed a curriculum that seamlessly blends the guidelines of the British National Curriculum with the requirements of the Ministry of Education (MIUR). This integration allows us to provide our students with a well-rounded education that meets both national and international standards.To ensure a comprehensive language learning experience, 70% of our lessons are conducted in English. This approach not only supports English language proficiency but also prepares students for further education in line with global standards. By offering a balanced curriculum that incorporates both national and international perspectives, we strive to provide our students with the best possible educational foundation for their future endeavors.

The subjects are:

  • English
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
  • History
  • Geography
  • French
  • Art and Design
  • Computing
  • Coding and Robotics,
  • Music

STEM education and laboratory teaching

STEM education is an integral part of our curriculum at Benedetto XV Middle School. Through the use of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, we foster students’ inquiry and critical thinking skills. Our science and coding/robotics laboratories provide hands-on learning experiences that encourage collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving.

At the end of each school year, our students have the opportunity to take an eligibility exam at a local Italian school. Additionally, at the end of the first cycle of education, they will sit for the state exam. Throughout their three years in middle school, students may also choose to take the Cambridge (ESOL) PET and First (FCE) exams, further enhancing their language proficiency and academic achievements.

We strive to provide our students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for their future endeavors.
