"I have no doubt that I would not have become the person I am and the profession that I chose were it not for my years at OSR."

Feeling guilty for each failure, as I felt, I lacked the self-esteem to make new friends and so was quite alone. I was an eleven year old child who felt terrified in a crowd of peers that were running to their seemingly destined future, and I was trying my best to stay on my feet and get out of the way of the stampede.

Brian Sheehan, Former Secondary School English Teacher


“Working at AOSR was a life changing experience. It was a wonderful job in a magical city. I made so many friends and met the most incredible students and colleagues. I know my path will always lead me back to AOSR. It is like the coins that I tossed in the Fontana di Trevi securing a bond that will never be broken.”

Josh Nash, AOSR Parent

"We are an American military family. Our children are military children so at first moving to Rome and going to AOSR was just another move for them. But having been accepted into the amazing American international community here has changed our minds about this being "just another place".

Carmen Fuccillo, AOSR Class of '10


“AOSR is an amazing school. I had the most wonderful four years of high school that I could have ever imagined. I made life long friends that I still keep in touch with today. AOSR opened so many doors for me and gave me an international experience that I will treasure forever. "
