These are the questions that families ask us most frequently. Any questions relating to our educational programme can be discussed when we meet.
For many other points, they can be a useful initial guide.
For Sure! Every child has a natural talent for acquiring new language skills if guided correctly. Your child will be initially assessed and then supported for their first 6 months to help them settle in whichever Grade they enter. Our experience shows us that children are able to face this step calmly and naturally.
The Italian Ministerial Programme is an additional bonus for our school, but the number of hours of English taught in English Gate School is identical to those of other international schools.
At English Gate School, simply being able to speak English is not enough to teach our students. Our teachers, as well as being native speakers, are fully qualified professionals with training in their specific subject area. They have also gained teaching experience in many international schools abroad.
The IB method is a very valid and internationally recognized approach to teaching, but it is not the only method available. From our experience, we have realized that teaching excellence stems from a blend of different didactic approaches, so why limit ourselves to just the IB? We call our Curriculum ‘Open Source’ because we have harmoniously adopted the best aspects of well-known methodologies such as the International Curriculum of Studies, the Montessori method, the Reggio Emilia approach, the IB program and the school of emotions among others.
We currently provide a bus service which collects students from pick up points in Muggiò, Monza, Mariano, Cantù, Chiasso, Como, Saronno, Fino Mornasco, Cermenate. We can also add others if necessary.
