"IS Modena is an IB world school offering the IB programme of education. I would encourage parents who are considering enrolling their children to research these programmes in order to develop an understanding of what they offer and how they work. The Primary Years Programme takes a holistic approach and focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer both in the classroom and the world outside. As a parent you can see your child developing their skills and confidence. The Middle Years Programme is an engaging curriculum organised around the study of eight traditional subject areas. Here you see your children becoming expert at learning; they develop their ability to locate, process, critically evaluate and communicate information. The Diploma Programme is a challenging programme, academically rigorous and excellent preparation for university. Overall, I would say that our ten years here have given us a great international experience," said another parent with children at International School of Modena in Modena.

"Educate yourself about the IB program. Go to the presentations that the school offers on the curriculum and the IB program, Become an active member of the school community! This way you will make the most out of your stay in Italy and here in Modena and you will find many new and interesting friends and a great learning environment for yourself and your children at the international school of Modena," commented one expat when asked about International school of Modena in Modena.

"Ask to see the inspection report, ask about budgets for books and IT resources, ask to see the books of children in the school - this will give you an idea of what you are letting yourself in for. Ask to see curriculum plans in place for the years of your children. Ask the school to show you any Online resources they subscribe to. I advise this because had we were somewhat naïve when we looked at the school and had some shocks once we arrived. Please ask to see how they develop the children grammatically and mathematically and about differentiation and progression. I did not see any examples of this happening during our 3 years at the school but things may have improved," explained one expat in Modena, Italy with kids at International School of Modena.
