American Overseas School of Rome:
Located in north Rome, Lazio region in central-western Italy, the American Overseas School of Rome is a fully accredited pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (ages 3-19) institute of learning. The curriculum is that of U.S. general academic, college-preparatory public or private schools. The School offers both the Advanced Placement and the International Baccalaureate programs. Our faculty focuses on the use of consistent assessment to gauge student understanding and to best focus lessons for student learning.
The School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is the first school to be granted an International Credential from the Middle States Association.
The American Overseas School of Rome is an independent educational institution catering to the needs of the English speaking community, offering teaching methods and curricula that prepare students for admission to American and international colleges and universities.
By assuring a welcoming, supportive and safe environment, the school intends to foster a love of learning, to build personal excellence and to nurture curiosity, creativity and critical thinking, providing our graduates with the confidence, self-discipline and courage to face the world's future challenges.
While supplying a comprehensive foundation in the core academic subjects, AOSR is proud of its rich programs in the fine arts and computer technology, and our students are given a special understanding and appreciation of Italian language, literature and culture.
All humans have the ability to learn, and learning is a life-long process. Because individuals learn in different ways, we provide different strategies and techniques to nurture the love of learning in every student.
Personal responsibility builds independence and is a key to self-development. Helping students to acquire motivation, we monitor appropriate behavior, building self-sufficiency and compassion our graduates will need, as productive citizens of the global community.
The dignity and self-worth of every person must be balanced with the needs of society. Understanding the ethical values of honesty, modesty and self-discipline, we pledge to build and inspire respect, including an acceptance and appreciation of cultural diversity.
