About Us

Founded in 1976, Southlands International School is a truly international school in the south of Rome. We offer six key programmes for students between the ages of 3 and 18 years old. The school is non-denominational and welcomes pupils from all cultures and backgrounds. Children from over thirty-five countries attend the school.

Having the best teachers is the key to our students’ progress and success. All of our teachers are mother-tongue English speakers and hold teaching qualifications as well as academic credentials.

At Southlands the academic programmes are tailored to:

  • Welcome and support speakers of many languages and cultural backgrounds at any time of the year
  • Instil and develop requisite skills for students to feel comfortable in solving problems and independently overcome any challenge they face
  • Develop a full appreciation of multicultural perspectives, form strong ethical and moral values and become proactive in enriching their local communities
  • Refine skills they need to succeed in world of growing complexity and demands
  • Enable students to transition between international schools and their national education systems smoothly
