Education & Schools

Rome - Education & Schools

Click here to go to this city guide's homepage

Rome offers a wide variety of schools and curriculums to choose from. Rome has a very high standard of education. Here you will find a variety of state run, or public schools, as well as many private and international schools. You will find both religious and secular private schools in Rome. The city also has many higher institutes of learning.

If you have children, and education is an important element when considering your move to Rome, you will need to decide whether to send your child to a private, international, or state-run institution. Although Rome, as a whole, has a very high standard for education, schools vary in quality just as they would in your home country.

You will need to consider whether or not to send your child to a state run, international, or private institution. Language will also be a primary concern in choosing your child's school. If they have no knowledge of Italian, they will not be able to attend a school that has a curriculum primarily taught in Italian.

As with any consideration, when moving to a foreign country, the best thing to do is to travel to the country itself and research the schools. You may even choose to tour, interview staff, or even sit in on a class at some of the schools in your area. Connecting with expats that already have children enrolled in school is also a good way to learn about and screen potential schools for your child to attend.

If your child does not speak Italian, you will probably want to look primarily at international schools. International schools can be both public and private and are designed primarily for students who are not natives to the country. They will not be required to speak Italian, and will still get the high quality of education that they need. International schools will give them the opportunity to meet other children of expat families, helping them to feel more at home in their new country and surroundings.
