Why La Scuola?

• La Scuola educates the whole child - intellectually, physically and emotionally - in a joyful and happy environment.

• Our philosophy is rooted in the tradition of the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We hold an image of the child as strong, competent and creative, with no ceiling to a child's learning potential.

• Inquiry is the leading pedagogical tool of our transdisciplinary education, thereby fostering critical and creative thinking skills, confidence, integrity, collaboration and empathy.

• Our students develop a life-long love of learning and become world citizens who care about their local and global communities. 

• Language acquisition is a cornerstone of a La Scuola education, both in the Italian Immersion track, as well as the English track with Italian as a second language. Bilinguals have better cognitive and verbal skills, as well as higher executive function.

• Children are surrounded by warm and nurturing teachers in an aesthetically beautiful environment.
 Careful attention to the integration of pedagogy and the design of space offers the children a rich sense of place.

• Children graduating from La Scuola have the cognitive, creative and social skills necessary for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
