International school admissions

The International School of Siena serves a diverse community of students from a range of nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. We offer a broad based education which uses English as the main language of learning and caters for a range of student abilities. The International School of Siena is an IB World School and has adopted a set of core values that guide every feature of our educational provision and the school is explicitly committed to full implementation of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). As the school grow in the future it will also adopt the IB Diploma Programme (DP).

Our admissions policy is articulated to encourage the maintenance of diversity in our student body, as well as to ensure that students who are admitted to the International School of Siena can benefit from our educational provision and be successful in the terms of our structured objectives for learning.

We recognise that a number of students are less likely to benefit from our model of education. Our policy and procedures are designed to identify these students in order to help parents and the school make the best choices in line with the individual needs of these students.

Students can be admitted to the school at any time of the academic year (with the exception of students joining the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 12 and 13) and decisions are primarily based on a student’s prior school record (where appropriate) and a personal interview in which students and their families can demonstrate a commitment to the Core Values of the school.
