Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome, Families! 

La Scuola Head of SchoolAt La Scuola, our mission is to “Inspire Brave Learners to Shape the Future.” We do that by leveraging the best of what is known globally about learning and child development across subjects, and giving our students both the academic and the socio-emotional skills they will need to thrive, fulfill their unique potential, and be happy.

At La Scuola, we don’t view children as empty vessels that we fill with information, but as learners. Our students learn to seek out the answers to questions they ask themselves, balance what is known with their own curiosities about what is possible, resolve difficult problems and think creatively to wade through the tides of change ahead of them. 

We are proud of our global community, of the multitudes of languages spoken on campus, our diverse faculty, and the rich array of cultures that our families represent. As an International Baccalaureate Italian Immersion School, our diverse community helps our students think beyond their immediate environment and engage with the many different people of our increasingly globalized world. They celebrate diversity, rather than fear it. Our students are at the center of the learning process: and they fill us with joy and wonder every day.  

I hope that you will visit La Scuola and experience our beautiful school environment, our welcoming community of students, teachers, and parents and that sense of openness, optimism, and joy that I feel every day when I walk through the doors of our three campuses

Con Stima,

Valentina Imbeni, Ph.D.
Head of School
