International School of Milan welcomes the new Headmaster: Mr. Darren Nicholas

September 7 2021

"It is with great pride and passion that I introduce myself as the new Headmaster of the International School of Milan. To have the opportunity to lead and grow a school with such a strong tradition and reputation is an absolute honour. I will work tirelessly to ensure every student has the opportunity to have a truly wonderful education, both inside and outside the classroom, and leave ISM being fully equipped for a successful and happy life.

I moved to Milan with my wife and two young daughters, who are all enjoying their experiences in such a dynamic, historic and beautiful location. Having been passionate about sport my whole life, I am enjoying the wealth of opportunities available in such a vibrant city. I am looking forward to participating in a wide range of sports, especially skiing, whilst learning a new language and immersing myself in an exciting culture. Not to mention the delicious food! I look forward to meeting you all very soon."

Berklee Artist in Residence with Eleonora Bianchini

MAY 25 2021

17th & 18th May ISM launched the Inspired by Berklee Artist in Residence Music project. Almost 75 students were selected from Grades 4-12 to participate in this exciting new creative partnership with the prestigious, world famous Berklee College of Music. The two-day event was a huge success, and we are very much looking forward to many more musical projects!” Commented the project coordinator, Ellen O’Flaherty.

The aim was learning how to write a song in small groups of students selected for particular music interests or talents, offering a great experience to build up each other’s skills whilst working collaboratively on a creative project.

A huge thank you to our amazing teachers and to wonderful artist Eleonora Bianchini for this extraordinary experience!

JUL 8 2020

We at ISM are delighted with the results of our students this year in the IB Diploma examinations. Our truly non-selective cohort achieved superbly well, which was even more impressive given the difficulties faced by our students due to the lockdown which lasted longer here in Lombardy than anywhere else. All of our students have risen to the challenge achieving places at the best universities in the world including Oxford and Imperial College with one of our students achieving the highest score with 45 points.

TERZA MEDIA EXAM RESULTS

JUL 7 2020

The results for the 2020 Grade 9 Terza Media exam for ISM have been published and even in the midst of having to prepare during the Coronavirus outbreak, we have yet again shown that the Terza Media exam holds no fear for ISM students. The pass rate was 100% which again, given that the students had to combine preparation for this exam with their IB MYP studies and in an online environment is hugely impressive. Our overall average of 8.5 was maintained from last year and the 2020 exam also brought many other highlights. This year we had 34 students in total with 6 students gaining a 10 and 88% of our students gaining a minimum of an 8. No ISM student gained less than a 7 which shows just how hard the students worked to get these superb results.

 Our thanks to the excellent work of the Italian team who supported the children led by Mr Vetrisano but as ever, the biggest congratulations go to the Grade 9 students who did superbly well. Congratulations!


 

VIRTUAL LEARNING

MAR 17 2020

Following the additional ministerial decree published on March 9th confirming that all schools, nationally, will be closed until permitted by government decree, our ‘virtual’ schools will, therefore, continue to operate until this date. 

The implementation of this has been met positively as we have strived in the face of adversity to continue the education of our students; acting quickly to leverage the technology and e-learning capabilities of the Inspired group and supporting the skills required for independent learning.

A huge thank you extended to the entire school community of students, parents, guardians, teachers and non-teaching staff for your support in making this a success.
