BAIA congratulates La Scuola International School for receiving the International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation after a rigorous process lasted almost 3 years. La Scuola is San Francisco's first IB elementary school and the ONLY IB REGGIO ITALIAN LANGUAGE school in the world.
You may be familiar with the IB at a high school level, but not primary and middle school. There is a wealth of data on the IBO.org website that illustrates why an IB education leads not only to higher academic success but also high social/emotional satisfaction and empathy. In San Francisco, we like this balance!
La Scuola is very proud of its international community: about 30% of the families that have kids at La Scuola are Italian and 70% are from a wide range of different countries. Families are sending kids to La Scuola because of the quality education that offers. In the Fall of 2016 La Scuola will add in the elementary school an English track alongside the Italian immersion program.
As a member of the Board of both La Scuola and BAIA I am particularly proud of this historic moment for La Scuola.
