The American Overseas School of Rome is proud to celebrate 75 years of academic excellence. Alums from over 17 countries will join us in celebrating this milestone on October 15. We will celebrate our rich history as Rome's most exclusive, non-denominational American-International School
AP is short for Advanced Placement. College Board created a program that offers college-level courses for high school students. It is also famous for producing good performances and shows you can deal with college-level work. If you're applying to a UK university, it's often the minimum entry requirement.
AOSR is the first school in Rome to offer the Advanced Placement Program. To this day, we still provide the most comprehensive courses throughout Italy.
As a Head of School and an international educator for over twenty years, I am often asked, ‘What is the difference between international schools and normal schools?’ Of the Rome international schools, AOSR is often recognized as ‘the most international’. Let me explain how.
AOSR has proudly offered the IB International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme since 1989. The IBDP is a highly challenging, two-year, pre-university program of studies for Grade 11 and 12 students.
Diplomats, business executives, army families, and even local families have one priority in mind when it comes to education for their children, and that is: 'Is this a good school for us?' In Rome, it is no different, with several options on the market, but what is a 'good school' and can you find them in Rome? If you are reading this post, the short answer is that you just did!
As a relatively new member of the AOSR community, I feel compelled to remark on the deep and lasting impression of welcoming that met my family. Our PTO President stated, ‘Our community is here to support each other, we are in this together.
Have you ever asked yourself what an American-International Education means? This environment, fostered by educators recruited from around the world, nurtures and challenges students.
