The VITTORIA JUNIOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL was born from the experience of the Liceo Vittoria, a consolidated educational institution in Turin.
We have decided to make the teaching skills developed over the years available also to the youngest children, offering a course that combines the strengths of the Italian school with the best international school programs.
For the age group from 3 to 14 years old, we are the first institution in Turin to offer a complete bilingual Italian and English school program, approved by the MIUR and, at the same time, certified by the University of Cambridge.
We are a charter school approved by MIUR, and the University of Cambridge identifies us as International School for the “Primary” and “Lower Secondary” programs: our students obtain two official qualifications certifying the skills acquired, respectively in Italian and English.
A person can be defined as bilingual when able to speak, read and write correctly in two different languages.
Bilingualism is a great opportunity, especially in a globalized world that still uses English as a vehicular language in many contexts. Numerous scientific studies show that bilingualism is also a tool for cognitive development and prevention that has a positive and lasting impact on the life of bilinguals, especially if acquired during childhood. Bilingual children show greater brain development, better memory, better ability to assess situations and faster decision making. We do our best to ensure that this learning and transformation process takes place in a totally natural and spontaneous way.
The University of Cambridge, through a department called Cambridge Assessment, coordinates and regulates a certified system of international examinations and awards. This branch of the university is well known for the sector called English, which provides the famous certifications of English as a foreign language (KET, PET, First etc.). Less widespread in Italy is the International Education sector, which offers a progressive and complete educational course from 5 to 19 years old, articulated according to a specific structure in distinct phases (Primary, Lower Secondary, Upper Secondary) but coordinated with each other, and characterized by disciplines that can be well matched to the different national education systems.
Its programs for schools, although still not very widespread in Italy, are applied in over 10,000 schools distributed in 160 countries around the world. VITTORIA JUNIOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL will be the first school In Turin to offer the Primary and Lower Secondary programmes.
